Very nice hotel, with lovely lobby and well decorated throughout. Great facilities for a fairly small hotel (pool, sauna etc), and nice eating facilities. Buffet breakfast is excellent, being served from the buffet but as much as you like. All staff were very polite throughout the hotel. We did feel a little let down with our room, being placed in...

Great place to stay for business or pleasure. Spa and swimming pool. Stylish, recently refurbished. Restaurant has limited choice, expensive menu but quality food and breakfast is great. Staff attentive but unobtrusive. Good location for the BIC and beach/pier as long as you don't mind the hill walk up from BIC or take the coastal route.
