AAA Inspector Notes
Just up the hill from town you'll wander upon this circa 1852 hotel. An island standout, it has a red mansard roof and wraparound veranda overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Rooms feature duvet bedding. A row of inviting Adirondack chairs beckons you to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets. The bistro is open for breakfast items, including freshly baked pastries, Illy coffee and a long list of fruit smoothies and juices. All rooms feature enhanced bedding and flat-screen HDTVs, the latter of which is uncommon on the island. A third of the rooms have air conditioning, so be sure to request one beforehand if that's important to you. Many guests are fine with the fans provided and the breeze off the ocean since the island is usually 10 degrees cooler than the mainland.
Did not meet all AAA rating requirements for viewports/peepholes in some guest rooms at time of last evaluation on 08/31/2017. Facilities, services, and décor characterize a mid-scale property.
