  • 4.0.Fair

    Fairly disappointed, looked great on pictures.

    Need an upgrade or maybe some proper maintenance. Couldn't make the breakfast and they didn't want to refund me although I pad extra for it through - anyway, not much, but leaves a bad taste. Won't visit again.

    Not Good

    The stay started off with battling to get into the room. The door had to be lifted up and pulled backwards in a certain way in order for the key to work. Then once inside, we couldn't lock the door as the "knob" wasnt working. There where another problems: The cabinet in the Bathroom was warped and broken. The trapdoor in the ceiling was wide open. The pillow slips where dirty. The paint was coming of the walls. There was mould in the shower. No, it was no a pleasant stay at all.

    Nice chaps at Chapman Hotel and conference centre

    The Chapman is centrally situated within walking distance to the beach and close to high end restaurants in the area. Nice view, friendly staff and comfortable rooms.

    Decent Hotel, good Service and amazing view.

    It is a decent hotel, with good service and staff. Door locking was a challenge but the staff was super helpful. The view from the room and restaurant was amazing. Pool was nice and clean as well also with amazing view.
