“Do not stay here if you want to get a decent night's sleep.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

Reasonably adequate rooms, but the walls are paper-thin and the staff spend half the night talking (or shouting) to each other in the hallways at full volume. Unbelievably inconsiderate. Also, the bathroom fixtures are just sad -- toilet takes an hour to refill (noisily), sink splutters like mad every time you turn on the tap and the shower door wouldn't close. Sleeping in my office would be more restful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2011

the atmosphere was quite exceptional due to its serene environment. I very much enjoyed myself and would recommend it to anyone.

I liked its location the most not forgetting the service from the staff.
