Lovely spacious room. Comfortable bed and large TV. Unfortunately the aircon unit in the room had an intermittent squeaking noise that woke us up several times. Apart from that, it was an enjoyable stay.

Hotel was excellent position close to tourist destinations and next door to supermarket. A sauna upon arrival was great. Pool and spa looked inviting but was a bit cold. King size bed was great and comfortable. Cleanliness was perfect.
