Testimonial

...Two nights were spent at Soldiers Point Marina. This is a new marina and has been rated 5 anchors by the international Rating Scheme for Marinas. It is worth every penny it cost to stay. In our case an out of season rate of $95 sounded expensive at first but for this you get top class service and facilities. Cocktails in the evening, courtesy car to go shopping, morning newspaper and coffee and the bathrooms would put any Hilton Hotel to shame. The Point Restaurant above the marina was so good we went a second time.
