Great stay. Compact & convenient
Great stay here! It’s compact but has everything you need. We hardly spent much time in our room as always our on the go but when we did it was clean, comfortable and have everything we needed. Well located and the reception staff are great. Would definitely come back here for sure. The Polynesian bar is also fab for a cheeky little cocktail!
