Positive Reviews

Memorable views

The sea view from the balcony is phenomenal, and guests enjoy the fact that they can unwind and relax in private after a long day of out and about. There's nothing better than enjoying a cold beverage after an exciting day out on the town.

Away from the maddening crowd

The hotel is located on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Those looking for more of a peaceful and quiet stay, say the hotel's beach front location is perfect.

Responsive staff

The staff, especially those at the front desk are welcoming and friendly. Most are service orientated, and guests can see they try their best to ensure a relaxing stay.

Negative Reviews

Needs urgent maintenance

The hotel itself is starting to show some substantial wear and tear. Guests complain about having to walk up quite a number of floors to get to their rooms because the lift doesn't work, and fixtures and fittings have also reached a time where replacement may be a good idea.

Water has a strange taste

Many travellers complain about the taste of the water. Most put it down to the water being way too salty, and think that it can't be all that heathy to drink.

Restaurant is pricey

The hotel's cuisine is considered to be average at best, with prices being a little on the higher side. The restaurant staff are also considered to be a bit slow when it comes to service.
