My husband and I spent two nights at the Heritage Hotel. Unfortunately for us we were unable to get a balcony room (due to them being booked out), but the room we were in was suitable for our stay. It was very clean, as was the whole hotel. Now for the food! My god! It was divine. It was first class food and they catered for me as I am coeliac. The staff which included the chef and assistant went out of their way to make sure the food was perfect. I would go there just to eat the food. Would I recommend this hotel? Most definitely. Also, the locals are very friendly also.
