My husband and I stayed here in June this year. We found it to be an excellent choice. It seems that all rooms have an excellent view of the harbour, are clean and comfortable. The shower was hot and had good water pressure. The buffet breakfast had a good variety of bakery products, cereals, fruits, juices and hot food, with... More

Is a good choice if you just want to walk out the front door, the hotel rooms are very comfortable and in good condition. The views are fantastic and are probably the best in town. The restaurant was a let down, not alot of service and the manager smelt of cigarettes every time we where there.

A nice size hotel in a very convenient spot, but a 'boutique' casino. The games room had a bit of everything and a lovely room to look at - but would be the smallest I have been to. The food was good, staff friendly (and local - not transient workers from Europe, etc., which kept the authenticity). Because it is... More

We stayed here 4 nights in total over 2 separate visits, and there are so many reasons why we went back for the second visit.
