    The building is well maintained and the staff are very efficient. Location is good, not far from most tourist stops. Security is important. The place is well run, strong wifi and comfortable beds/pillows.

    Hi Andrea, thanks for your message. We don't have air conditioning, generally not needed as evenings are usually quite bearable even in summer. We have plenty of parking though. Kind regards, Hayley
