Positive Reviews

Very quiet location

You're not exactly in the thick of the action at this hotel, but that is actually a good thing. The area is nice and quiet, so it's very relaxing. You won't hear a thing in the neighbourhood, and you're far from the busy tourist crowds.

Decent value for money

This place provides all the basics and provides them very well. The rooms are simple and clean, and the pool and other amenities are a nice bonus. For the price you are paying, you'll struggle to find anywhere that is such good value.

Kind staff

The people that work here are quite friendly and have no trouble waiting for guests that are arriving at odd times. The front desk isn't always open so you may have to call for service but they always try their best to get you sorted as quickly as possible.

Negative Reviews

Not the best beds

Guests have complained that the beds at this hotel are hard as a rock and that it's quite difficult to get any sleep. The double beds are actually two beds put together which is not the best for comfort. If you like soft beds, then you might want6 to stay elsewhere.

No further issues reported

So far, there has been no further negative opinion expressed about this hotel.
