Very average food in the Restaurant. Very little amenities. Bar closed most of the day. House keeping pitiful. Very little to do and very limited eateries in the area. The pool bar which seems only open for a very limited time and the same goes for the restaurant. No coffee shop. You have to leave the hotel for everything

You come back to the Hotel after another full hard day at the office so to speak, away from home, and all you want is luxury, friendliness, and comfort. This place has it all and more. A great place to retreat to. Thank you !. :)

We thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. The room type booked is our lead-in category and thus has limited space for additional furniture. We suggest that should you return, to book the next category which does have a dining setting in the room. We do wish we could control the weather, but Mother Nature as full control that area.

From arrival to departure- a very good experience. All staff that we uncounted were of friendly and professional. The room was of a high standard. Welcome drink appreciated. Disappointed that they do not have a dinning room for dinner after a long day on the road.
