The hotel facilities, location and cleanliness is good. The racist attitude from a white lady and a colored lady in two different incidents was terrible and discomforting. Their service was extremely unacceptable and reported to management. It is unbelievable that there are still such racist people in places like hotels that are meant for everyone irrespective of color. They made... More

Generally very good/ excellent. Value for money. The menu for breakfast on some days was not so good but most days it was fine. Dinner menu could also improved. We had one day of room service dinner and it was divine. We enjoyed our stay there as a family.

Staff are helpful. However, the rooms are not well laid out and a bit dated. Avoid the new wing of the hotel due to noise from the N2 that runs parallel with the hotel. Food is average and selection is limited (buffet), dinner was pretty much the same as previous evening.

My room was facing the habour and waking up in the morning was a sight to die for. The staff was friendly and very responsive. The room service was quick and the food was very nice for the price that I paid.
