Nice place, convenient location would definitely recommend.

I stayed in the Fish Tank on a warm private room with my partner. The location of the place is great and the staff very friendly and helpful. They held on to our bags when we went to do the whale watching and rented us a couple of bikes to go see the seals. We were only there for one night, so couldn´t really get to feel the atmosphere. The downside was the noise from the pipes, but in general the place is nothing outstanding, but convenient and with great staff, which is always a plus.

Room 8 could do with a bit of love. I know its budget accommodation, but there were several wholes in the wall or whatever that someone had just stuck a board over to cover. A like of paint to cover the other patches on the walls in different colours would probably improve the impression.

Lovely stay at the lodge. It's location is brilliant, right were the bus stops. The place is clean and tidy, with a cosy lounge and balcony. Shame the room I stayed in only had a skylight for a window, would have loved to have enjoyed the views!
