    Place was quite charming with local decor. My aircon worked well, shower was hot enough, bed was comfortable and rooms were clean. Breakfast was tasty and ample. Staff was nice but not always proactive.

    There were many small things that added up to a mediocre experience. There is potential but not being fulfilled. Some rooms have good internet and others do not. Some have moisture issues which cause damp musty odors. Rooms are oddly shaped and the large furniture makes for tight flow around. My TV stopped working and even though I was told it would be replaced, so I patiently waited. 3 hours later, after another inquiry I was informed that nothing would happen until the next morning, which turned into the next evening.

    A big plus was the king size Zanzibar bed, and it felt clean.

    A very disappointing experience was when we came home a bit late one night, there was no night guard to be seen, no one attending the reception, the door was left wide open and our room key had been left on the counter for anyone to grab and enter our room. Tried to contact the manager to address the issue, he/she was unavailable at check out and has not responded to my inquiry by phone. There was also big variation in staffs skill level and customer friendliness, some skills training could help lift the hotel guest experience.

    Staff was very helpful and friendly. Place was very clean.

    Breakfast was very limited and had cockroaches around the food area.

    Location was great. Right in the heart of Stonestown and easy to get to the main areas on foot. Staff were very kind and organized things for us or pointed us in the right direction of things. Room was clean on arrival, bathroom was big, and charging stations for electronics worked just fine. Overall a comfy stay.

    We had an early flight and had to go to bed fairly early. The area was a bit loud and we could hear music through our windows. It didn't stop us from sleeping, nor did it go all night. Not sure it would have been much of a problem if we hadn't gone to bed so early. The bathroom could use a facelift with some of the tiny tiles falling out at the back wall and a safe in the room would have been nice. Decent enough place to stay on a busy weekend, but wouldn't stay here for too long.
