I had requested a quiet room and received room 503 in the back courtyard area. I had to go up a flight of steps, thru the restaurant, up steps to pool area, around it, up a few... More

Apart from a really lousy & prolonged check-in experience, my room with it's balcony and view was exemplary and quickly made up for this shortfall. Breakfast was rather average with all warm offerings sadly being ice-cold.

We booked this hotel through Groupon and I found that it was great value for money. The hotel is excellently located, close the waterfront and long street. The breakfast was 5 star quality! I would recommend this hotel.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. My partner and I stayed here for few days whilst on holiday. Changed rooms as the room we had with a mountain view was so noisy with car traffic. The bed was small and not comfortable. Moved to second room that was bigger and bit quiet but they could've offered similar room initially... More

They had a delicious breakfast selection that suited a vegan. The front desk staff went the extra mile to make sure their guests were happy with the amenities. The shuttle service... More

Everything was perfect, rooms, location, cleanliness, service, employee friendliness. The hotel is well equiped (pool, gym) and very stylish. The breakfast buffet is huge and has a good variety of offers (fruits, muesli, different bread and toast, pastries, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, fresh juices, smoothies, tea and coffee). But unfortunately the hotel is run by a cruel female manager... More
