We stayed for one night on the way back home. We had dinner in the restaurant. The menu and service were all perfect! The service in the hotel was excellent. Rooms are very well equipped. The environment is beautifull.

Positive: Beautiful building. Decent rooms. Central location. Not so positive: No matter your job or your salary, show up in casual wear (i.e. flip flops, t-shirt, with a backpack) and you'll be judged immediately as an inferior client. However, this doesn't seem to be hotel specific, so perhaps I shouldn't fault them. When I booked online, there was an error,...

Breakfast was great, the room was nice. No complaints. We weren't there long, but we didn't have any issues either. The concierge service was also fantastic. They had some great restaurant recommendations and helped us find where we were going.

I stayed here for two nights in December as part of a business trip. The hotel is quite nice and provides most modern amenities. Things which let the hotel down were: 1. Price, this place is reasonably expensive for a basic room. 2. Found the concierge to be pretty pushy when it came to trying to get information. We wanted...

The unimposing doorway leads to a surprising interior. The foyer backs onto an open cloistered courtyard, with bar and pool. Interesting views over the harbour area, and a good pool. The rooms are an inspiration, beautifully renovated, and each distinct. I especially liked the bathroom, opening back to the bedroom. All this finished off by a four poster bed! Well...

Th hotel itself is nicely done, and the decor is nice.

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel's tasteful touches, but within 2 hours of checking-in, I was regretting. Whatever I ordered,...

I have stayed here on 7 business trips over the past several years. It is a lovely hotel in a former colonial building.
