It was so cosy and wonderful. The staff were really helpful and the serene environment was amazing. The rooms were really comfy and the breakfast was continental. I could request what I wanted. The WIFI was up and running all the time. And its close to all amenities.

Reasonably adequate rooms, but the walls are paper-thin and the staff spend half the night talking (or shouting) to each other in the hallways at full volume. Unbelievably inconsiderate. Also, the bathroom fixtures are just sad -- toilet takes an hour to refill (noisily), sink splutters like mad every time you turn on the tap and the shower door wouldn't... More

the atmosphere was quite exceptional due to its serene environment. I very much enjoyed myself and would recommend it to anyone. I liked its location the most not forgetting the service from the staff.
