Good hotel location, BUT Rooms 220 to 250 are not on actual second floor and can't be reached in the usual way. You need to carry your luggage up and down two levels. If the luggage is heavy you will technically suffer back pain. Some of these rooms like 235 are actually 7 meters away from the fast highway cars...

My wife and I stayed here in November 2015 and overall were very happy. I've stayed here before and thought I really liked it last time. It was very clean and tidy had a great view of the courtyard and the hotel even upgraded us. Everything about the stay was great except one minor thing my wife had failed to...

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I will investigate the vacuuming outside your room at such an early hour as our cleaning staff do not commence until 9.00am. Please accept my apologies for this inconvenience, I will ensure it does not occur again.

I was advised by my local business associate to stay at this hotel and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was large, with a large jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Both were clean.

Stayed here for a friend's wedding as she wanted an older style room for photos getting ready (I was in the bridal party). We had a two bedroom apartment which had a kitchenette, living room/bedroom and ensuite on one level, and another bedroom and ensuite upstairs. The hotel is very old and the decor is to match.

Our hotel has been built in an old English hotel style and is maintained as such. I am glad it was suitable for your friend's photos. Thank you for your feedback.

Reviewed 3 October 2015 via mobile

Certainly is an old style hotel that has been given a refresh. Rooms are a good size and my one was nice and clean. Wi-Fi worked well although didn't understand the point of giving me a 24hour password if I was staying two days. Just annoying to have to ask for new password. Breakfast was very basic.

Do not drink this evil stuff 😂 Only drawback was the rude and arrogant Frenchman that was our "waiter" for breakfast. rudest man and would never stay for breakfast ever again !

Our basketball team stayed here for the June Long weekend. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Being a bit colder we didn't use the pool but a few of our boys used the gym on site which is a nice plus. The hotel has a bit of class to it with some nice finishing touches and the beds were comfortable....
