    Very friendly and helpful staff. We had an issue with one of the aircons in our room and a maintenance person was sent up within 20 mins and sorted it out really quickly. Really impressed with that.

    The pool area looked a lot more spacious in the pictures on booking.com but in reality, it was quite small. when we wanted to use the swimming pool facility on Saturday afternoon there was a children's birthday being held there and there was no space for us to make use of the swimming pool so we left.

    Loved the location, it was close to the beach and city centre. It being so central made it easy to get around. The apartment was very spacious and clean and had everything we needed. Most of all, I loved the bed, very comfortable!!!

    Was almost tricked into buying a travel discount package which i was made to believe that i had gotten a boat cruise voucher as a thank you for booking with Oceanic. I was told that we would be picked from the hotel and taken to the destination. All lies! Was driven to a separate location (not the harbour) and was bombarded with a sales pitch to buy into some discount travel package. when i declined, i was then told that i would have to get myself to the harbour! Was totally mislead!

    The self-catering set-up.

    The lay out of the room. The fridge is in the lounge, it would make more sense for it to be in the kitchen/dining area. The shower water didn't drain on the first day but it was attended to once I informed reception staff which I thought was good service. There are no plugs near the mirrors and one would expect the hotel to have a generator for load shedding. I mean walking up 4 flights of stairs and not being able to iron your clothes before going out is a bit annoying. Perhaps even a schedule of when the load shedding would take place should be given to guests since the hotel has nothing in place for power outages. That paired with the lack of plugs near the mirrors or mirrors near the plugs is enough to put a person off the place.

    At first we were very sceptical and anxious about hotel but that changed as soon as we arrived. We arrived early before our check in time and the staff was kind enough to let us in. The rooms we very spacious especially the double bedroom . The kitchen was fully equipped. They hotel had a restaurant on the first floor which was very convenient. Great location -closer to the beach. All in all its a great value for money. Definitely worth coming back

    The electricity kept tripping a day before our departure.
