I had a great stay in this excellent boutique hotel. Everything ticked the boxes - accommodation, location, and breakfast were excellent. The staff were so accommodating and friendly. I will definitely stay here again.

Hi Kim There is the hop on hop off city site seeing bus. We also use Unicab or Uber. Another option is hiring a bicycle or walking, it take me 90 mins along the beautiful promenade. Thanks Emmy
