Extremely dated, not clean, good location.

The location is excellent and we had an absolutely gorgeous view. However, the rooms are incredibly dated and weren’t cleaned very well. Ours was quite dusty. For this reason, I couldn’t recommend this hotel. The rooms need to be completely refurbished.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

The rooms are not exactly luxurious. The fixtures in the bathroom, etc are quite old, but the room was perfectly fine for our visit and the location makes it totally worth it.
