Positive Reviews

Friendly service

The hotel’s owner as well as the staff are very warm and friendly towards guests. The owner in particular gets a lot of positive reviews for personally taking time out for guests. Staff is always there to offer assistance and advice to guests.

Family-friendly facilities

This hotel is quite a favourite with families for the facilities available here. Children love playing with the slides and toys in the outdoor pool as well as the well-maintained playground. The family entertainment area is also very popular among the guests.

Great location

Guests love the fact that the beach is easily accessible from the hotel. The proximity of Gateway Mall and other shopping centres nearby also makes it quite convenient for guests. The neighbourhood is also a quiet place which adds to the charm.

Negative Reviews

Bathroom facilities

Guests find the bathrooms to be quite unlike the comfortable rooms because of small size and old facilities. Small details like non-replacement of dirty towels and toilet paper make it an unsatisfactory experience for guests.

TV needs upgrade

The absence of satellite channels on the TV is something that guests do not like. The channels available on the TV are too few for in-room entertainment.

Poor Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi signal is quite weak in most of the rooms as mentioned by travellers and something that can be of concern for business travellers. However, the signal is good in public areas.
