The hotel is located in a small mixed-used building, with two supermarkets and a few cafe's downstairs - very convenient. Decent views on the upper floors over the top of the building in front towards the sea. No pool unfortunately.

greeted by flies when first entering my room, had to kill them before settling down, card keys for opening doors not working for the whole 3 day duration, forced to use bath soups and lotions used by previous guests-unhygienic!, only thing nice was the breakfast. Try other hotels or BnBs!

Great location and the accommodation was good. Rooms were clean but just a bit too small. Breakfast was top class! Staff was friendly and we received great service from Melisha who was always willing to assist with our needs and requirements. Frustration was the reprogramming of your room card whole day, every day.

Unprofessional treatment and lack of appreciation of the business being brought by guest. Name dropping like, Management, Accounts Department and Hotel rules are used to harass guests and to hide inefficiencies.

Excellent welcome from the reception staff, great food and location! The restaurant suggestion from the reception crew was amazing, they even booked a table short-notice. Walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants, places for breakfast and the beach. Great view of Lion's Head.
