One of my favourite hotels! The service is always excellent and nothing appears to be too much trouble for the welcoming and efficient staff. The Friday brunch is brilliant and the facilities are high quality. Every room I have ever stayed in has been just right.

Great Location, Nice staff, furniture is a old but clean and comfortable. Nice swimming pool. It has a couple of restaurants but they are not the best restaurants ever. Not far from the airports and close to the down town.
