This is an old colonial hotel originally built early in the 20th century but modified and added to since. As such, it stil retains much of its early character such as a couple of rooms at the front with old colonial style bookcase and furniture and a bar area which probably hasn't changed in 100 years except for the addition of masses of graffiti on the walls. It's therefore quite different to a modern concrete block but still has all the amenities you would want. it's quite close (walking distance) to the rather charming town and adjacent to the golf course (which seemed little used) if that's your thing. The grounds around the hotel are very pleasant but there's no swimming pool nor fitness facilities. the rooms are slightly quirky in their layout and decor but nevertheless quite spacious and comfortable with good facilities. Just a point - if you can't find the switch for the wall lights, try looking just above the skirting board behind one of the bedside cabinets! The restaurant and the food was excellent and we didn't have any problems with the service which wasn't always the case in this country. Overall, a very pleasant and relaxing place to stay.
