    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    Brilliant location and very helpful staff! Luckily had a room away from the bars but only because I had to wait for nearly 2 hours to check in due to my original room not being cleaned on time.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Fantastic hotel nearby eveything

    Fantastic stay in the en-suite king room. Really spacious and ours had a mini fridge so great for drinks and snacks. Walking distance to everything and every type of activity can be booked onsite with the tour team.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Great location. 2-10 minutes walking distance to most places of interest. very helpful staff and clean. Only negative side is that it is next to restaurants who turn into clubs at night. The sliding doors are not soundproof so you will here the booms of the music until abouts 1-2 am. Not the best if you have early morning activities. But other than that, nothing but positives.

    Stayed 3 nights in Dec. 2019
