As discussed with the Manageress - the service can be improved. We experienced that sour milk was served with our Coffee- and tea breaks. Frozen Choclate Volcano was served (outside hot) inside frozen. But everything is well organized and was pleasent - unfortunately little things like poor staff can do a lot of damage.

Good quality accomodation. Rooms very nice. Hotel as a whole, very good. The original paintings of well known artists on the walls is stunning. Enough and secure parking. Selection of local and imported beers is impressive.

The hotel is near the airport, close to main shopping malls and highways. The rooms are large, with comfortable beds and bathroom. There is a bit of noise from airlines coming across at night, but not overly so. I was a bit surprised to not have a minibar in the room, with the bar costs for drinks rather high. Meals... More

I visited the Hotel from Sunday the 28th Of June until Friday the 3rd of July. Neat, clean room and bathroom. Cleaning service every day. I had to make use of the shuttle and were always accomodated with a smile. The food in their restaurant (which was conveniently open the whole day) were very good and tasteful. The friendly service... More

It was far too cold in the room in winter, even with the heater running full blast for hours, but otherwise it was clean, nice, well fitted with amenities, and not bad for a night or two. Restaurant was ok, but breakfast needs to be served a bit earlier, or at least on-time, for those with early morning flights. Staff... More
