Staying here has been great. Clean facilities, hot showers and a decent bar with a good vibe. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating! Walking distance to the waterfront however a taxi ride away from the main part of town.

If you want to stay central of the city, you must chose an other place. It is an 45-60min walk + bussride in to the city. Only negative... More

Room had a fridge and our own bathroom. The staff was super helpful in everyway. We had a tour-package, so we went to a lovely wine tour... More

The place has an amazing atmosphere. Really enjoyed it there. The people are awesome and they are not afraid to assist when needed. Loved the greenery! The linen had a stain on it and the parking is the best, but overall I will definitely be back.
