Hotel is conviniently located within the town. At the entrance is a washing point which has soap but no water and paper towels. The rooms are big and well maintained and comfy. The food and restaurant area is a great disappointment. The sanitizer dispenser doesn't work, hand washing point is at a hidden corner with trickling water and no paper towels. The lighting is so bad, it gives the feeling of we do not want you here. The table are set with minimum cutlery and condiments are only on some tables. If you are lucky you can get a table set, otherwise set one for yourself. The food is ok but limited variety. The staff look tired and sad, don't ask too much out of them. It was not the best of experiences

Let me just say the bathtub was the best part of the hotel stay. After this period of minimized travels, We'll definitely be back for a proper holiday. The aquariums at the dinning area, enhance the ambience. Esther our waiter for both dinner and breakfast was really awesome.

The hotel is within town. The rooms are big and very clean. The place is calm. I enjoyed the stay. Breakfast is too good. You can simply enjoy. The staffs are friendly. The restaurant is within the compound where you can enjoy delicious foods. A great experience. I will surely staying next time.

Stayed here on business and the hotel was great with good service. Held a dinner and cocktail event for my customers at one of the halls one evening and everything went smoothly - well handled by the staff. The rooms are also quite amazing, very modern and comfortable. Would recommend this place to others.
