    Had a lovely time in this wonderful hotel. Good food clean rooms and friendly staff. Ideal location for a trip to this fabulous island when there isnt any motorcycle racing on. Wouldn't hesitate in booking this hotel again.

    There's a ground floor entrance but reception need to be called to open the door if it's needed between 11am and 5pm when the area is not manned. We have no walkin showers or disabled friendly rooms unfortunately.
