Stayed at this hotel last week and what a great choice we made. Formerly home to the mayor, this boutique hotel houses only a few rooms each having very distinct decor. The staff is immensely gracious and looked after ou every need. The food here is not to be missed! By- Simone Pardiwalla

The decor and service get a thumbs up from me. The food however ceases to please especially for the price you pay. I ordered the French onion soup which came with an entire slice of garlic bread immersed the in it - heard of croutons but what's with a bread slice?

Location was also great - just a few minutes walk...

I was there with my family in August 2015 for dinner. The Hotel is a heritage property and is beautifully maintained & decorated. The restaurant is spacious, but the Air-conditioned area is comparatively small. Seafood, especially prawns and the Lasagne they prepare are a must-try!

Best location & luxurious rooms. The property is a min away from the seafront. Food is amazing. And so is the staff at your service always with a smile! Loved staying here. All the attractions are at walking distance from the hotel. Would have loved it if they had an eggless bakery.

The property is extremely beautiful and very well maintained. However thle best part of the property is the hospitality and the courteous warm nature of staff which was splendid! They really go out of their way to make you comfortable. Highly recommended and ensure you spend at least couple of nights to enjoy the property!
