The Management & Staff are so warm & welcoming, we feel that we are in our home from home. The food, service & hospitality is wonderful & extremely accommodating.

This is one of the places to visit when you looking for fun, leisure, boat cruises and golf. It has very and helpful and friendly staff and is popular with locals because of the various boat cruises that depart from there. It is next to beautiful 18 hole Riviera golf course which can be accessed straight from the hotel gardens....

The hotel staff were amazingly friendly and always willing to help. The efficiency of the service, though, was less than adequate, e.g. we had to wait a while or ask for help repeatedly. The room was very comfortable and clean. However, our family room had no sleeper couch in it, and we were given a single mattress when we asked...

Stunning sunrise view. Clean and stylish hotel room. Couldn't get a chance to swim though as I caught flu almost the entire vacation, nonetheless the pool had a nice ambiance. Breakfast buffet was lovely. Hoping to return. 👌😎

We received really excellent service from the hotel staff and the facilities around the swimming pool were fair. However, we endured two nightmare nights trying to sleep with air conditioners of which the fans worked, but not cooling the rooms at all.

Spacious rooms, with a brilliant view to the river. Great garden outside with a pier to the boats, there is various activities to choose from. Decent gym that I enjoyed. Swimming pool, open to locals, so it gets a bit noisy during the day. Also right next to the golf course, so lots of walking and running space. Dinner time...

The hotel and it's grounds are awesome. There are a number of small things that could be fixed up as well and I also believe that the level of service from the staff could be improved on. I would stay there again though. Great place!

“The air con is fantastic & is a pleasure after a boiling day outside. The rooms could do with an upgrade in furniture & fittings as well as the bathrooms. The size of the rooms are fabulous & very comfortable & the mini bar fridge is wonderful to keep a cold drink or two.”
