Good hotel
Check in was a bit slow but other than that I cannot fault it. Very pleasant staff, nice breakfast, good location, good rooms.
Paul, gb1 night business trip
Fair 4.0
This is very run down hotel that needs a complete renovation. The internet only works half of the time and even when working it is slow. There is a nice pool, but it only has two deck chairs and closes at 6pm. On the bright side, the staff is fantastic! Everyone is really nice and making the best of bad owners.

Very Good 8.0
Superb service from the reservations team, special thanks to Tashne who was very patient and efficient in handling all our queries even prior to arrival. Loft suite was lovely though may not recommend it to families with toddlers more for safety reasons. Room service was slower than expected, took almost more than hour to arrive - can be improved. Carpets in room doesn’t feel fresh & clean. Needs much improvement on this one.
