Took advantage of a long weekend in Kuwait to retrace my steps of the time that i used to work in Bahrain.
This hotel is confirmation of the phrase "the best things in life come in small packages". Its not a big hotel, currently only 20 rooms, but that ensures a personal service at all times. Right from the start when booking the room they offered friendly and efficient service. The rooms are spacious, clean and very modern. Free WiFi with good reception, I get annoyed when some hotels charge for this. Breakfast was to a good standard, all the essentials with freshly cooked omelettes to order. Front desk very attentive, Kerstin is the Manager and she's always there to offer help and suggestions. An example was car hire; since they offer complimentary airport pick up/drop off, it means that you don't have to pay a premium for airport car hire since there are good ones in the area that will deliver & pick up at the hotel.
Dont miss out on the Masso restaurant to the rear, I didn't know it was so highly rated but now i see why. Great ambiance, adventurous menu and attentive waitresses without being overbearing. If I tell you that I was sad to come the end of the meal then you get an idea of how good it was. The restaurant staff take pride and obviously love what they do. It looks to be a place frequented by regulars as well as hotel guests, probably advisable to check availability first.
So, all in all a wonderful stay, will certainly recommend to others; the only problem about writing these reviews is that it might be full up when i next decide to come again. Never mind, take advantage of the excellent room rates and get genuine hospitality.
