Stayed here in November 2014. It's a fairly short ride from the airport and near to our offices, so pretty convenient. Not so much if you want to go into town or the Waterfront. It is walking distance to a large shopping mall, which is really handy. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room itself was set up... More

Hotel is in a great location and very central to highways and our clients. Lovely restaurant and pub around the corner. The room was magnificent with a relaxing lounge and great view. Breakfast the next morning was pleasant and the hotel transfer to the airport was affordable.

We were allocated a 'family room', which was a small suite, with 2 queen beds, more than what we needed. The room was adequate, but looked a bit tired in some parts. The bath and hand basin was...

Hi to all staff . You all made our stay wonderful. Everybody at the reception was very helpful and polite. Special thanks to Chuma who took special care of my wife who was sick when we had an excursion. We stayed in a two bedroom penthouse on the fifth floor and the views was perfect.
