    When I arrived at tge hotel, i was told the room i had booked and paid for in January was not available and i had to accept another cheaper room. The following day I spoke to the manager, Moses who promptly gave me an upgraded room. Very happy with this outcome!!! Apart from this one issue, the hotel, grounds and staff are great. Reception desk very helpful. I will happily stay there again. Really nice hotel.

    quiet retreat

    With limited rooms, this makes for a quiet retreat. The rooms are very comfortable and well taken care of. At night a staff member even comes to get the room ready for the night - puts the mosquito net down, fluffs the pillows, turns down the bed. The fresh fruit in the room was an added bonus. Such a comfortable, warm and welcoming spot.

    Charming hotel

    Charming colonial butique hotel, completed with old world feel and problems with hot water. Well Suites for romatic stats, but for Business trips I lacked a few shops nearby.
