Reviewed 11 December 2016

On the plus side... 1) exceptionally clean; 2) a short 3 minute walk from the ferry dock; 3) nice view of the Road Town harbor; 4) large bright room; 5) includes safe, fridge, mircowave. On the minus side.... 1) staff somewhat indifferent but not enthusiastic; 2) safety could be improved with an uneven step at the top of the second floor stairs, and tub is quite slippery - (spouse fell in the tube whilst taking a shower); 3) food was mediocre and over cooked; 4) wait staff did not know the menu - (was told that a particular entree was enough for one person but enough chicken arrived for two; 4) ordered garlic bread but waiter also brought out complementary rolls (why didn't he tell us, why didn't we ask?).

We stayed at this hotel for only one night. The breakfast was good, food served warm and with a friendly smile. The coffee was REALLY good.

Great location in Tortola. Unfortunately, having been to lots of hotels in the Caribbean, unless you pay plenty for an expensive hotel, you only get a moderate hotel with usually poor service. It's as if everybody who works at these places isn't interested in their work or fed up, not appreciating that it is the tourists that keep them in work.
Having said that, it should be the responsibility of the owners or management of these hotels, to make sure their staff serve guests properly.

We stayed 2 nights here after our Moorings charter went bust. We were surprised by how crazy clean and spacious the rooms were. Very modern and comfortable. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was fantastic! We really enjoyed it!

Matter a fact it wasn't even a serving as no one ever visited our table in the 23 minutes we we're there. It had 4 tables with people on it, yet seems very slow and chilled. It was so disappointed to have wasted our time, however we did enjoy the breeze.

Basically the service sucks. P.s we went to purssur' s instead, as we walk in we were greeted and pointed to a seats where the order was taken in less than 2 min.
