We stayed at this hotel because it is marketed as a boutique hotel and wanted to see what that definition meant. Well it means just enough to get by........ The rooms were very sparse and minimalistic, but quite comfortable. One of the biggest cons to this hotel is the lack of a hot tub. They have a pool but it... More

We stayed as a team and were very impressed by the amenities, the room allocation and how accommodating the staff were. The rooms were clean, nicely appointed and close to the pool area. The pool was perfect for the kids and parents alike to hang out and enjoy time together. The included breakfast had a nice variety and was readily... More

Check in was swift, sleep was terrible, the pillows are like quicksand. On the first morning, I went outside to check if there were any taxis, none. So I kindly asked the front desk lady (Russian woman) to call a taxi for me. She asked me for my name, I replied, "Powin". She asked how to spell it, I spelled... More

We're were welcomed with open arms even though it had been a year since we last visited. Very warm reception by extremely capable staff. Nice clean room with all the comforts. And if that's not enough, a wonderful free breakfast. Highly recommend this hotel for value, location and service.

very modern style hotel, rooms comfortable, all good except the addition of a microwave would be helpful. Staff where all very friendly and helpful. Linen and beds excellent. The menu at the lounge could have a bit more variety on it, but overall would return.

Everything was so modern, quiet, clean and comfy bed! Also had a walk-in shower instead of a tub. Something you don't see in many hotels! Also pet friendly so don't be afraid to bring them along. They had a water dish right by the entrance, it was nice to see. Awesome place to stay!

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Some neat ideas - including a sort of 'Tuck Shop' just off the reception that served some decently priced snack food and drink options. Room was very comfortable - great bathroom. The only disappointment for me and it was a big one is that the breakfast was shockingly poor quality - and don't... More
