Great hotel
We used this hotel as a stop off on our way down south. It had friendly, helpful staff, great room with everything you need, including air conditioning, and free WiFi. Also use of a good, clean swimming pool on a hot day. We had a wonderful evening meal. I would recommend a stay at this hotel.
