We have stayed here before, last time in January 2012 and it was better than good.
Paid extra for a room in the new building, very clean and well presented.
Stayed again in November 2012, room to the same good standard, a bit more pricey but there are free 'extras', water, shampoo, conditioner, etc.
BUT in the mean time, the central air con unit for the new building has worn badly and as it is on the roof, the noise like a tractor running all night made it impossible to sleep. We had to change to a 3rd floor room at 1am ! Could still hear it but did get some sleep as we were shattered by that time.
Its a real shame that bad maintenance makes a good hotel unusable.
The old building should be OK, each room has a separate air con.
The staff are well aware of the problem but appear not to be willing to fix it.
We had intended to stay for 11 nights but gave up after the second.
