    Lovely room, friendly staff, quick check in, very nice breakfast selection. It's not a beach hotel so no pretty views from the balcony but was just perfect for my stay in every other way. Great location.

    Excellent Hotel, Breakfast was good and the staff friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the Gateway Shopping Mall and accessible to a variety of Restaurants, Takeaways and Coffee & Cake shops within walking distance. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay again.
