Lovely restaurant staff, most specially the ladies who made my girls mocktails. About 2km walk/run to nearest shop (Coles) if ever you needed something. Front desk staff are easy to talk to and let them...

Our room was spacious with adequate facilities but was not serviced. We had to ask for additional tea and coffee and also extra towels and tea towels. The hotel has good restaurant and bars, tennis courts,...

This establishment does not deserve Accor or Sevel status, it is dirty and old. The service is appalling, the staff are untrained and there is an air of non chalance and disregard for the customer. The saving grace was the restaurant as the meals were ver y good, but the manager was rude and harrassed and tried to pass of...

Asked twice for the sofa bed to be made up.. housekeeping went home so reception just gave extra pillow and blanket. Restaurant service friendly but...
