We stayed as part of a coach tour. All rooms are ground floor. The hotel is tastefully decorated with many free facilities. Rooms are a good size with coffee & tea, iron & board, extra pillows, safe plus ample space for an open suitcase. The shower and bathroom are well laid out and have a good range of accessories. There...

This review is only about their restaurant - The Grill. Dined here with a group function. Paid $44 for main and dessert. It wasn't worth it. The menu should be clear. If it says your steak or your chicken will be served with steamed vegetables, I'd expect my veges on my plate or in a side dish for me -...

As a New Zealander I was embarrassed by the poor standard presented by the Solway. I have travelled in 6 different overseas destinations this year and this was by far the...

“I stayed in Room 502. It was very modern yet warm and friendly I think that the quieter rooms front the central grassed area with the pool.”
