Positive Reviews


Will get a good nights’ rest.

Most guests thought their beds were comfortable and more than a few complimented the warm and cosy temperature of the rooms, even on freezing cold nights.


Good central location.

Guests raved about the centrality of the hotel to both the town and the beach. Business travellers rated it as convenient, if a bit basic and rundown.


The fitness centre is worth a visit.

Guests thought the fitness centre was absolutely fantastic although apparently the machines are a bit dated. The pool and sauna seem to be the highlight of many guests’ experiences.

Negative Reviews


Could be cleaner.

Many guests complained that the hotel was not cleaned properly, from dirty carpets to a smell of mildew and actual mould in the bathrooms. Others complained that the curtains were off-track and that their beds had not been made properly. Room housekeeping


Under renovation.

While some guests were quick to point out that the hotel has just changed management and is undergoing apparently much needed upgrades, they still complained about the state of the rooms they stayed in. That said, staff is quick to move guests to other ro


No parking.

Many guests complained about the lack of parking, especially because most needed a car to visit both local attractions as well as restaurants and shops. Some guests also felt a little intimidated by the neighbourhood, which is apparently a bit run down.
