Facilities were available just outside the rooms. Rooms were good. Restaurant was good with nice options. Lift were good. Staff at the receptions were great help. They provided the details required for keeping the luggage before 2pm and also guided on the tours and nearest hop-on hop-off bus stops.

Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in a 2 bedded room. Beds were convenient. Only problem is the shower in the privat bathroom/toilet. There is no shower curtain. So the chance of getting wet feet being on the toilet after a shower is 100 %. Causeway cafe can be highly recommended. Very tasty and great variety. Was my 4th stay there...

Was a perfect place to stay and everything was within walking distance. Clean, quiet, secure and well worth the price. Definitely going to book again down the line. Be sure to do it in advance, can be in demand!
