Very Good8.0
A spoiler
Everything was great except for a fly during one of our four visits to the restaurant. But then again flies in the tropics is impossible to avoid completely.

A well managed hotel
Property is a bit dated but management has a pretty strong handle on the overall look and feel of the hotel. Its located in the heart of the city center, pretty convenient.

Bad experience with customer ser/ greedy manager.
Not good experience with the manager who refused to give a good rate despite I lost 2 days in checking in. She wants to charge more and without breakfast from original rate. She is greedy.

Brilliant, professional service. Great location
Great, efficient service. Ms Ernie at reception made the check-in a very easy . The only issue is I could not see power plug for my shaver in bathroom . Current renovations mean there is no club lounge which is sad as the sunsets are spectacular from there.

First class hotel in a great location
This is a genuinely excellent hotel, especially the staff who were polite friendly and wholly professional. The view out over the bay was just awesome.
