Verified Reviews of The Central Hotel Best Western Premier

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Good"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The accommodations were very good. The only problem was that the beds were very hard and our room was over the pool. The noise was loud but ended at 10 PM. We ate at the Irish Pub and the food was wonderful and very reasonable. I would definitely stay there again.
