We first stayed at this hotel in 2001 when it was 'The Carlton'. Strangely (apart from being 1 floor up) we had the same room. The room was clean & tidy , but still furnished with the strange, unusable bedside cabinets with a clunky old-fashioned radio inside! The pool & restaurant area have been favourably renovated since our last stay.... More

I stay here for work and have no choice. The best part of the hotel is the pool & restaurant area. The reception is lovely and that's where it ends. When you step out of the lift on your floor. The smell of Mould fills your lungs, it's that strong you can taste it. The rooms are tired and dated.... More

I felt like I could have been in a villa in Spain. Beautiful views over the water with side views of the hotel colored a dark stucco pink. The room was decorated with taste and for extra comfort. Table lamps provided warmth - and the bed was plump and super comfy. The in house movies where plentiful and up to... More

The hotel is old, having been around since the mid 80s under a different name. It looks like this particular hotel is in some serious need of maintenance in the rooms and hallways. If I were to stay here again, I would seriously have to think if it were worth it for the price.

I have stayed here 4 times now. The pool area is very nice, with adjacent bar. Staff more or less friendly, rooms have been neglected, feels like an 80s time warp. My room had blistering walls, bathroom shower floods the floor and does not drain, and wash basin cracked badly. An annoying issue is the room keys stop working during... More

We stayed here on a business trip. After being in the Palmerston Sunset retreat (avoid as the best thing about that place is the name) we decided to move on and although we couldn't check in for a few hours we found the service to be friendly and professional and the cookies were yummy my partner told me, in fact...

Overall it is a nice hotel, helpful staff with good food. Only the rooms are dated, need updating (think 1980's). Would be better if the internet was free, also not much in the minibar. At most was a chocolate bar and some drinks.
