Hi Brian, I remember it well......I was concerned that Cyanide may have suffered an electrical failure and that, without any lights, we could run into her in the darkness. Think we all gained a bit of "experience" that day !
Landlord, The Granitiere used to offer the best accommodation but it's a fair hack to get there, particularly if you're carrying a bag and have wet boat gear. The Café Du Port used to offer a decent bar, a good restaurant and comfortable accommodation on the quayside. It's much more convenient if people need to nip back to the boat for any reason and you're in the heart of town for other bars/restaurants etc, rather than being on the outskirts.
Having stayed at both, not recently I would add, the CdP would be my choice.
