For a quirky place to stay this is it. Rock memorabilia all over the place. Very nostalgic for a couple our age. Plenty of families too. Swim up bar was a winner although a bit pricey. Same with pizzas.

Overall was great except BIG disappointment for breakfast. Food was good, service excellent - BIG thumbs up to all service staff at Staz Cafe on morning of Sept 24, 2016. Firstly had to queue for 15 mins and shock of my life - I thought I walked into coffee shop and not cafe of HRH! Amount of guest, noise, etc......

Sliding door concept on the bathroom with no glass wall makes for sounds and smells escaping into the bedroom. Extra bed mattresses are really old and practically concave into the box spring layer. I had the mattress changed once with no improvement.

From check-in to check-out, it was a breeze. The staff were exceptional with their hospitality and genuine friendliness. A special shout out for Sven who was polite, attentive and very personable and also to John, the GM, who we had the pleasure of meeting. He was always visible and ensuring that everything was running smoothly. Children enjoyed the pool area...
