We had a terrible nights sleep, our aircon was broken so they gave us a portable one which was basically a fan. We would have turned this off however the white noise helped drown out the noise from the outside and constant buzzer from the flats next door. We initially thought the buzzer was people coming to the hotel, we...

I stayed for 4 days in PE. The place is conveniently close to the airport and there are many amenities close by in case you need to get something you forgot. On arrival the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The comments on the website were not positive but I took a gamble anyway. I was not disappointed by the...

Given the websites pics and wording I was expecting better. The staff have been super friendly and helpful and I can't blame them for any of the comments below. However this is not lavish, elegant nor luxurious. The place is in need of a serious upgrade, dirty carpets in passage ways, cracked window in my room and cracked glass on...

This hotel was disappointing. its basically a large, very dated guest house. Our room was extremely small, however there are larger rooms available and we given a larger room after a polite complaint, however the Air conditioning didnt work, so we returned to our small room. the hotel management is very good and very accommodating, couldn't fault them at all....

Beatiful venue with warm hospitality. I would suggest one of the executive rooms, which have king size beds, mini-lounge, and jet-baths which are seperate from the bathroom and shower. Great breakfast, and also perfect location.

Pre visit admin was excellent, with my queries answered quickly via e-mail, as was the initial friendly greeting by Michelle. We were the only guests staying that night, and we were asked what time we would want breakfast so that she could make sure that the kitchen staff were there. We thought it a bit odd that we should be...
