Dave, I have not stayed there, but I met several couples on my last cruise in October that did. and they thought it was great. Their only criticism was there isin't much to do within walking distance of the hotel. But they also said that considering the hotel was extremely comfortable, a nice location, and very close to the terminal, it was not a big deal.
And there is a beautiful marina there to stroll around; and the early risers got to watch Sapphire Princess cruise up the channel. So all in all, a great choice.
