I had a perfect stay at this hotel along PE's beachfront. The view from my room was exquisite & saw a beautiful sunrise. I was thrilled to find it clean, neat, spacious and more than adequate. The complimentary drinks & snacks for guests by the fire every evening from 5-7pm is a win! The air con in the room was... More

I stayed for two nights at this hotel and it was a good stay. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious and clean. My room had both a bath and a shower. It also had a fully equipped kitchen so I'm guessing guests can book on a self-catering basis too. If you opt for dinner, it... More

We had a quick stay here for a night on our way to another destination and it served its purpose. It was one of those nondescript places one might stay at on a business trip. One nice feature was that it had a free laundry area for guests which was bright and clean. Plenty of parking is available right next... More

I got off a 13 hour flight from the UK, hired a car and drove to this hotel. I walked in and found a lot of building work that had closed a lot of the public areas of the hotel which wasn't a great first impression.

Stayed here many times before, and this time we found that the hotel was being refurbished during our stay, this however made no difference to our experience, rooms were superb, a balcony view over the ocean. Staff were warm and friendly and could not do enough for you
