Room was clean and service was good. Rooms and bathrooms are smaller than I prefer. It was easy to access all the local shops. the walk up the hill is strenuous but good exercise. It would be good practice to have cleaning staff more quieter in the hallways.

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel was so good. On arrival the lady on reception was efficient and friendly. There was a cheese and wine reception on the evening which was a lovely surprise. The continental breakfast was really good, also the available drinks in the reception area throughout the day. Our rooms were spacious, the beds comfy and everywhere spotlessly clean. The patio on the upper level was a definite plus especially sitting out there with a glass of wine or coffee Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if we visit in the future.

I've stayed at this hotel 4 times I think, and I love it! Staff is great, rooms are super nice, and they have everything you will need for a stay on the island. The adjustment made to the continental breakfast service does the trick and is much appreciated! See ya next time Aurora!!
