First attracted by the convenient location, a two-minute walk from the Dalgate crossroads, opposite the Boulevard, and by the peaceful courtyard garden. This is a mid-price hotel catering to families and tour groups, providing wholesome buffet-style meals and a very high level of friendly, personalized service.
