Positive Reviews

Convenient location

The hotel is situated fairly close to Rock Beach, as well as Promenade Beach. Guests find that it's only about a five-minute drive to these popular spots, making for a great base for those wishing to soak up the sun during their vacation.

Soft on the pocket

The budget-friendly rooms are attractive to travellers who prefer to spend their time out and about enjoying what the city has to offer. Guests like that they are left with some spare change to enjoy as they please once the holiday comes to an end.

Staff are kind

Hospitality is a strong point amongst the staff at the hotel. Guests say they can approach them at all hours of the day and night, which usually results in any potential issues getting sorted in no time at all.

Negative Reviews

Lack of detailed billing

Whether it's a bill for room service, or the final bill after checking out, travellers are not pleased about the fact that it's not always forthcoming. Even after repeated requests, guests mention that they still don't get any joy.

No restaurant here

Guests say they would prefer it if the hotel has its own restaurant. They complain of having to go out in search of a good eatery every time they want to enjoy a meal, which they find is rather inconvenient.

Insufficient parking space

The parking in front of the hotel is limited. More often that not, the spaces are occupied, which means guests have to find alternative parking arrangements further down the road. They are concerned about the security of their vehicles, as well as having the extra walking distance, sometimes with heavy packages and kids in tow.
