Was a good stay! Was welcomed well by the manager and staff as I came with friends. The manager sorted everything to our satisfaction and even asked us for our requests for breakfast ! #IWouldStayHere! Close to the beachside, restaurants and also the bus station and Stadium 9/10 Overall

John the landlord was friendly and he was available if needed. Rooms was clean and fresh. Couldn't work how to get the channels on the TV. Didn't appear to work. But overall a great place to stay. Very close to bars and coach drop off. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks John.
