My room had a lousy view but was clean , the chambermaid was excellent. This is not 4 star. The situation was handy but the frontage was not the best position. The food was OK. All the staff were very helpful except maybe reception , bit short and Solomon.

The hotel was surely a great deal more&less 20-30 years ago. Rooms are quite comfortable but could be cleaner. Location is great right in the middle of Tower Rd. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are AMAZING!! Delucious and there is everything what you can dream of!
