This hotel made our holiday so special

London, United Kingdom

Let me start by saying that I am very picky when it comes to hotels but we stayed at this hotel for 10 days and we simply loved it. It is not 5 star luxury, for example, some places do need a lick of paint here and there however this did not ruin my holiday in the slightest. The hotel is very clean (SAMPATH who was our daily room service person did an excellent job with our room and always left a beautiful display on our beds which was lovely to come back to everyday). Our room was very comfortable, beds were very comfortable, bathroom was very clean with nice big walk in shower. We have a room on the 3rd floor with beautiful views of the pool, sea AND river. It was amazing. The pool was very clean and big which was nice as it never felt crowded even when there were a few people on there. The beach itself is not private but is just over the public footpath. The beach itself was very clean with beach guards and was a beautiful beach. Again as it was a long beach it never felt overcrowded at all. We were on half board plus and so had breakfast and dinner at the hotel everyday and everyday we could not fault the food. We looked forward to the meals every single day. The head chef, CHRIS, and his team did an excellent job on the food (lots of variety and all tasted delicious!!). The restaurant staff were also excellent at their jobs and were always working with a big smile on their faces. The river boat transfer to/from the hotel was always a lovely little treat and the boat men were always polite and always with a smile on their faces. Overall it was an excellent stay and all the staff made us fell so welcome. The people is what we will miss the most!! If we ever return to the area again we will definitely stay there again.

Uhospitable & bad rooms

The hotel has more than half the rooms that dont look into anywhere....even those who look into the ocean have half a view. The suites where we upgraded to, also 'just' have a view. The suite( apparently there most upscale room) had cement lying on the floor of the washroom. The hospitality is really unwelcoming and even after complaints the staff doesn't even bother to respond back. Please dont be fooled by pretty pictures on the internet and the concept of a ferry to hotel. It's really nothing as compared to avanti or taj...
