This hotel is in a great position but is let down by the total lack of any management. The staff appear to have lost all interest in the hotel. It is reasonably clean but need maintainance vedry badly. The breakfast restaurant next door is good though.

This hotel's website would make you believe that you will be staying in a delightful romantic boutique hotel. The website photos must have been taken ten years ago. It is a typical run down hotel. We had cockroaches in the room, an A/C unit that broke and we sweltered in the heat all night before being moved to another room... More
