Great Hotel, good location (in the heart of town). The rooms are sizeable and neat. My experience at the Rasor Restaurant (an Indian Restaurant) was regrettable and considered unfriendly, dented my image of the hotel.

Great Hotel, drinks and shisha is a little pricey. Pool is amazing. No way of using the lockers, no one around to get a key. Room was very nice (superior), shower is brilliant. Didnt have breakfast as we just popped down to Starbucks in the Car. I like this hotel, its quirky and well kept

Nice hotel- little old fashioned but clean and welcoming. Very nice pool, drinks reasonably priced, lots of choice with restaurants and in a great location. Will stay again. Spa was closed but reopening in a few weeks so will look forward to that next time.

I stayed here alone for the night, I had the best sleep ever! The food was very tasty and lots of places to eat in the hotel. Staff very friendly and check in and out was very easy and smooth. Just around the corner there's loads of restaurants in adilya area. You will really enjoy the comfort of this place!
