I find that this hotel is one of the greatest I have been to. I arrived early in the morning and was offered free breakfast. Since I was around the reception for some time after that ,I got the key to my room already at 11am since the previous guest checked out early. The best part was the wonderful room...

This hotel was perfect for an overnight stay - the staff were very efficient and very helpful. The modern bathroom facilities were great. Easy access to the taxi rank meant an effortless transfer from the hotel to the airport.

Dear Mrs Victoria, the staff is always at the disposal of our guests for anything they need. The bathrooms were created based on the five star category.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights (21/10/2016-23/10/2016). The receptionist who welcomed us when we arrived were really helpful and friendly.

Close to airport and ferry docks. 30 second walk to main taxi stand, saves you up to 50% when you walk, rather than have hotel call. Roof top bar has great views and service. Not an extensive menu but good food. Great breakfast with lots of choices. Good place to stay when in transit.
