Great hotel, only stayed for one night but the staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was nice and comfortable with a big bathroom too. The black salt restaurant was also great for breakfast the next morning and would definitely recommend! For something i booked last minute the night before it turned out to be a great choice!

We stayed for 2 nights and were treated so well by the staff. The apartment rooms were really well appointed. The Black Salt restaurant was fantastic and would fully recommend. The amenities and decor was really good and the whole stay was excellent value. The only negative is the Bath shower set up which can be slippery if not careful.

Apartment was comfortable, spacious and quiet. Great location opposite the bay. Service was excellent! Staff quickly and courteously addressed my queries. Separate shower or curtain for the in-spa shower would have been good. (Free wi-fi did keep dropping out)

Stayed in a one-bed apartment for six nights and was impressed with how spacious it was. Furnishings were good if a bit institutional. Strangest thing was the shower within a spa bath and no shower surround or curtain so it felt like taking a shower in the middle of a room. There was no dishwasher in the full sized kitchen... More
