Can't fault this hotel. Reception, service, rooms and cleanliness all exemplary. It is well worth paying the extra for a creek facing room as you get a waterborne cabaret every day. I did not even turn on the tv for seven days. The breakfast has something for everyone in abundance. The South facing rooms on the Creekside are in the...

Excellent hotel on the south facing sidenof the Creek so its balonies get the sun all day. Service great. Breakfast great and plentiful. Rooms spotless and welcoming. Good quality beds and bedding. I never switched the tv on once in a week. The Creek's floating cabaret was entertainment enough. Knowledgeable reception staff with a 'can do' attitude. Can't fault it.

Stayed in this place a few times. It's a classic hotel but it's dry. The breakfast and buffet are really great and the staff are really nice helpful and smart. The hotel view of the creek is wonderful and the location is good for the gold and spice souk. If you need a drink (like I do) then the Raddison...

We loved our stay at this hotel, it suited our needs perfectly. The only thing we missed was having a bar at the pool. The hotel itself is spotless, the towels and sheets are changed as requested. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The dining room staff are excellent, I am gluten intolerant and the staff and chefs...

The hotel was nice. Could not really fault it. The area it is in is nice and close to Larissa Station which was good but the area generally is run down at the moment, but I did feel safe. A bit of a walk to the closest restaurants, but there is a Carrefors across the road which was a bonus.
