John,

The City Garden Lodge sounds a great place if you want to enjoy beautiful views. Apart from the excellent bus service, there are many routes you can take to walk into town - 20-30 minutes - depending on the route. And best of all, you are just by the waterfront, and if you enjoy walking (and smelling the salt and hearing the birds) you can walk around the bays. Highly recommended
