Positive Reviews

Stunning setup and surrounds

Rooms are spacious and big and beautifully furnished Extra amenities like hair dryer, iron, voicemail, tea and coffee-making service leave you wanting for nothing and guarantee a comfortable and productive stay.

Children cherished

The hotel is definitely family friendly and children under five years get to stay free of charge if they use the existing beds Similarly children that are two or younger who use cribs (attained on request) stay for free too.

Wonderful getaway

The hotel is well equipped for any occasion and its many factors make a for an overall wonderful getaway.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi prices are sky high!

Although Wi-Fi is free in all public areas of the hotel, in the rooms it is not (unless you are a Marriot Rewards member) Otherwise, the Wi-Fi is very expensive which is quite impractical if one is staying at the hotel for business purposes.

Sluggish service

Standard of service didn't meet the level of expectation associated with the hotel- staff were slow on delivering and food quality is often not good.


Comparatively, the prices are not necessarily competitive with other hotels in the vicinity, especially considering that the pool is in need of an update!
