Our room was neat and clean with plenty of room and enjoyed having the kitchenette for quick breakfasts before heading out. The area is very quiet during the day but is in the heart of the... More

I am usually a hotel snob and I wouldn't usually go for a budget hotel but this one was outstanding. With only a small amount of rooms the place always felt roomy and comfortable. The hotel is very basic but works. Everywhere is clean and tidy with a little bit of wear and tear showing. The location is key and... More

The staff went out of their way to know their guests. We met the managers at the sister hotel, Yellow Bird for a Rum punch party. Even though the staff were very welcoming to their guests, the hotel stay did not meet our expectations. Our room was not conducive to sleeping due to the Karaoke bar opened until 3 a.m.... More

This hotel is reasonable priced, the room views are amazing and staff very helpful. Ok the noise from the bars is loud but we got used to it quickly. We got a lovely bottle of red wine in our room for my birthday too which was a nice touch. All the guests nice and friendly.
