Reviewed 11 September 2016

Most helpful staff. Views are spectacular from breakfast area and balcony. Rooms are very well kept. Parking is available. If you want a place that is walking distance that is close to shopping and restaurants, this is the place for you. Good value for price. If I ever get the chance to go back, this would be the place.
