Located within walking distance of main shopping areas and restaurants. Hotel has bikes available so you can ride on the cycle and walking track along the sea front. Food in the hotel restaurant was top notch.

We were here for 5 nights and found every aspect of our stay most enjoyable. It demonstrated the famed Naki hospitality and comfort. The refurbished accommodation was tasteful with the best beds in the country. Across the days the meals were nutritious offering plenty of variety and catering for all dietary requirements. It was located close to the city centre.... More

This is a pretty good hotel. Moderately priced and the rooms are clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and helpful. My stay was very pleasant but unfortunately my bathroom though clean, stank of mould. I alerted the staff to the problem and they said they would get on to the issue
