Location is good - away from the main strip of noisy partying backpackers, but close to the park and a short stroll to Deckchair Cinema.
Service is good. Facilities are good, eg/ with the pool easily accessible. Continental breakfast had a decent variety on offer. Clean rooms, clean facilities. We stayed in a normal hotel room (not the bungalows).
Only two minor negatives. Sound-proofing in the rooms is a bit lacking, as I got woken up twice during the night, once by the noisy garbage truck on the street, and another by someone checking in and rolling their suitcases down the verandah.
The other issue was luggage security - it's self service to drop-off / pickup your luggage in the storage cupboard. Perhaps a tagging system would be better.
In a nutshell: would visit again.
