A bit out the way and not in walking distance due to the steep hill. Shuttle bus is provided but last one back to the hotel is 10:30. Could be doing with a bit more frequency. Hotel is lovely, very clean and food is fabulous. Mostly Chinese visitors for short break so you didn't meet any other couple, groups. Always room round pool and pool bar staff were lovely. The only downside was the hotel lacked real atmosphere. We were the only people in the restaurant the night we went down and the bar closed around 10 . No background music or entertainment (piano player etc) and although you don't want to spend a lot of time in the hotel it's nice to sit and relax of a night especially with the hustle bustle of Walking Street.
We were upgraded and the room was so lovely but our balcony faced onto reception. A bit of a weird layout and lack of privacy but there was a slight view to the outside pool. Didn't like to complain it was an upgrade for a 50th. When groups arrived during the night to check in it did get rather loud but guests wouldn't realise rooms were in reception. I would have liked reception staff to have a better understanding of the English language. That was hard work sometimes until we met one gentlemen who I think was Swiss. He was very friendly and great customer service. With being 20 mins into town you rely on the hotel for advise on trips etc we ended up booking down town better value and could speak English.
