6/10 Good

THE GOOD: Room was clean, comfortable and located on the Esplanade. Great location! The BAD: I did not receive a pin code to access premises and room. When I arrived at the premises there was no staff. I had to find a blanket. Kitchen area very untidy, rubbish bins needed to be disposed of. Kitchen rules needs to be made clear and apparent to all guests.

4/10 Fair

Good location. Friendly, polite manager. Room very basic-no coffee/tea making, fridge or tv. Insufficient sealing off of door into adjacent room meant noisy and light pollution and felt intrusive. Very overpriced for so called deluxe king room

8/10 Very good

Haven lives up to its name, very quiet but in the centre of all the action. It had everything I needed for a quick stay, including air con, a pool & a huge kitchen! Other visitors were friendly and it’s a little quirky too - very good value 👍
