Although in the middle of Bar Street, it was not too noisy and a perfect place to stay, very comfortable and close to everything including a Spar underneath

6/10 Good

The pictures are a touch deceiving but none the less our stay was ok. Its within a great location. Clean rooms and good cleaners. The disappointing point was that the Spa was either not working due to water issues or randomly closed with no staff avail to let us in. This was part of the reason in choosing this accommodation rather some cheaper alternatives. We were promised a call from the manager on 2 occasions though never got one.
