The room has everything you need and is clean! It is slightly further away from town ( just beside the gas petrol station) but if you have a car, this is not a problem. Friendly staff recommended a great lookout for us , was not in our plan but we went and it was really good! Glad we go for it!

good place to stay during travelling in GOR”

silence clean and comfortable

we got there at a little bit late and staff did welcome us very well. We booked family room for 5 people and I was surprised that the room was quite big and comfortable. There were 2 bedrooms, one with single bed, another room with bunk bed. The living room was not small with 2 sofas. I would suggest friends to come back here again if we plan to travel to GOR.

Great location, good value and friendly customer service”

We were late arriving and this was accommodated without issue. Spa bath was great and we got a very good price. We were warned that hot water would take a bit to get to our room and had to run the water a little bit because we had the furthest room but this was fine. On checkout the lady was very friendly. Looked like there was a laundry you could use possibly as well. Would recommend.

The hotel has a couple of rooms on the first floor where you can view the sea from the room. Most rooms had a microwave and the hotel offered beach towels and toys for the kids to take, which was really nice. Staff were all prepared when we got there and check in was lightning quick (loved it)
