Decided to have lunch here and it was a treat. With the Boardwalk right next door to the hotel it was great. We loved the lunch, service a bit slow, but the food was great. Will visit soon again and this time we will overnight in this landmark hotel in the Friendly City

We had a very special request and without hesitation were accommodated while other hotels refused. We extended our stay for nearly 2 weeks and went back the next week for another 2 days. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is great being right on the beachfront and at the entrance to the Boardwalk Casino complex with all...

I stayed at the beach hotel for two nights, and stayed in the newly renovated suite. Clearly an old traditional hotel, it has the charm and feeling of a seaside family establishment. My room had the most comfortable sofas in the lounge, which opened onto a little patio, and a glimpse of the sea. Once I was finished my work,...

We stayed here for the last night of our holiday. Location wise, it's fab, especially with the Boardwalk right next door and the pier opposite. The room was a good size, clean and with all the usual amenities. Breakfast was self serve but really nice. The reception staff were excellent; they helped us to print off boarding cards for our...

We recently enjoyed a couple of nights at this lovely hotel. It is in a perfect spot opposite the beach. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful, especially Rocky. We enjoyed a couple of meals in the Verandah restaurant. A great stay.

We found the service was very friendly. The decor was very art deco which is nice but when we visited in April it was due a refurb so a bit shabby. The breakfast hall was lovely. The only real disappointment was the pool which was very small and I had to get them to remove the creepy crawly that was...

Excellent location (awesome view). Buffet meals are very nice. Good restaurants in vicinity. Conference facilities are very good. Charming old school hotel. Rooms are nicely equipped with AC, fridge and hair dryer. Older furniture and fittings part of its charm.

We were only here for one night as a stopover before going on safari, so we didn't think that we would be offered the penthouse suite but it was a bit odd that the one small window in our room was frosted over and the other looked out over an internal courtyard.If you want an open view probably best to...

Stayed here for one night on B&B basis. Room was adequate with comfortable bed.
