Stayed at Sinclairs for two nights starting from 1st August. Because of the mixed reviews I was confused about the hotel status before. But it gave a fantastic experience. The veiw from standard rooms were not admirable. Just a hilly mountain. The food was average. Rooms amenities need renovation. Staff were cooperative. The location is excellent!
