It was just a quick in and out visit, so didn't want to pay a lot. It did the job, is a little tired, tape around mirror, wall not clean under bench, bathroom dated. But was ok for the price and the fact we only slept and left. Pillows were hard beds comfy enough. Free WiFi.

Good value and comfortable.
A small but comfortable older style unit just five minutes from the city centre and not much further from the airport. Electric blanket and reliable heating welcomed on a cold Palmy night. Staff very obliging, as ever. My second visit but not my last.
