Clean and well-presented rooms.

The decor of the rooms has been described as modern and pleasant with quality furniture and upholstery. Many guests complimented the cleanliness of their suites as well as the well appointed and clean bathrooms which were said to be equipped with up-to-date fixtures and fittings.

Close to attractions and amenities.

Guests were pleased to find that the hotel is within walking distance of many local attractions such as the Fisherman's Wharf with its array of shops and restaurants. Those who wanted to explore further afield could catch a bus right outside the hotel's entrance which many guests found extremely convenient.

Quality on-site facilities.

The hotel offers an extensive range of facilities which have been highly complimented by many guests. The pool was described as being of decent size and well -presented with plenty of sun loungers for relaxing. Guests who visited the spa said that they were extremely satisfied with their experience whilst the on-site gym was said to be spacious and modern.

Negative Reviews

Heat problems.

Guests who stayed at the hotel during the warmer summer months said that their rooms felt uncomfortably warm and stuffy due to the lack of air-conditioning units. Although fans were provided, many found them inadequate when it came to cooling down their accommodation.

Noisy evenings.

The front of the hotel overlooks a busy intersection and some guests said that the level of noise from the traffic was quite intrusive. Others whose rooms overlooked the pool area also mentioned that they were disturbed by noise made by guests who stayed at the pool until late in the evening.

Issues with Wi-Fi.

Those who wanted to connect to the internet from their rooms were disappointed to find that the Wi-Fi signal was very weak and could only connect close to the reception area.
