Good 6.0
very very small rooms, would have been difficult to get two adults in comfortably.rooms overlook pool area so people can walk by anytime of day or night so was a bit noisy . breakfast very ordinary and hotel is away from town .
Kenneth, au1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great overnight
Room was on the smaller side and quite basic (we booked the cheapest room available...). The bathroom was basic also but the water was nice and hot. The restaurant had a great view, food was good. We stayed here overnight as our flight arrived late, before setting off to our resort. The room was spotless. It is in a good location in town, but away from the busyness. Close to a new mall (small one) with a cinema and a great french bakery. The staff were very friendly.
