We (family of 3) had a very good stay at The Pines. The hotel is new, well maintained with very spacious rooms and very helpful staff. I had selected the deluxe room with twin beds. The room was VERY big with a "living room" which you normally don't get in a Deluxe room. The room was very clean, and was well maintained. The bathroom was clean with all the normal amenities. The "kitchen" area had a mini-fridge, sink & cupboards. I guess if they can put in a microwave oven & some cutlery, it could very well be considered as a serviced apartment.
There is a shuttle service from the Hotel to the town which is quite convenient.
The room was fantastic. Clean and comfortable. Ideal location. Perfect choice for our weekend away. Only down side was the lifts - very slow and only 2 for the whole hotel. Also slow check in due to queue of people. But other than these, it was excellent. Highly recommended.
