Mrs. Sue Holloway (25/01/2013)

"WE had a lovely room, large and comfortable. Dinner on the rooftop terrace overlooking the sea was magical. Then they let themselves down by forgetting our wake up call, fairly crucial since we had a 5 a.m. pick up, and then the promised breakfast packages were nowhere to be seen when we left."

Katie Austin (14/09/2012)
"The room was lovely - huge, clean and furnished beautifully. We arrived very late (approx 10pm) due to a delayed flight but information on arrival was limited. We sat downstairs in the bar for a drink before bed, however there wasn't any other guests in sight. We had to ask someone from reception to serve us a drink as the bar wasn't staffed. However, we realised in the morning that there was a rooftop bar which may have been where the staff and guests all were! Had we have been given more info on arrival, we would probably have had our drinks on the roof. This is really the only small criticism we have of the hotel. The room, location and view from the rooftop was wonderful."
Louise Eldred (14/07/2012)
"Decent base and retreat from the bustle of the teeming town. Rooftop bar/restaurant was great."
Heather McNally (11/12/2011)
"A good location in Stonetown. Hotel is clean, but service is a little slow, but a good choice in a challenging location!"
Cliff Taylor (17/09/2011)
"Hotel was very pleasant, room very good, views from restaurant brilliant. First night problem getting evening meal due to large party. Otherwise food, service etc good "
