I was pleasantly surprised by how good this hotel was. My room was a good size and very clean. Bathroom was also very clean. Only downside was the noisy stairs right outside my door. Apart from the stairs it was a quiet comfortable hotel with a great swimming pool and close to town and bus routes.
We had a superb stay, room was comfortable with excellent facilities, which was refreshed daily by very friendly staff. We ate breakfast daily which was superb, options were varied & service again excellent. The Spa, pools & Gym facilities were clean & of a very high standard.
