Walter Raleigh Hotel is good (was hesitating between Very good and Satisfactory then). We had a double bed room, with spare bed with view on the ocean.
Just a few minor things. Elevators looked vintage and makes strange noises : we felt like we would get caught in it. The adjacent part is undergoing renovation, therefore scaffolding was obstructing the view to the front . Breakfast finishes at 10am, which was not ideal for us.
