Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Loved the hotel, but upon leaving attempted the book for another nite, but sold out. Person at front desk was great initially, but rude later.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
10-Aug-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jun 18 to Sat Jun 19 2021 at a $134.10 average nightly rate.
"A very good experience."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The hotel was very clean. The bed was comfortable and they had a very nice breakfast. The fruit and pastries were fresh. I found all the staff to be helpful and friendly.

10-May-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Thu May 09 to Fri May 10 2019 at a $152.15 average nightly rate.
"Never stayed but sure I'll end up paying!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We never stayed at hotel and found it impossible to cancel room. Hotel listed reservations under Expedia and that was not the case. Hotelplanner booked room and could not cancel room either because they could not get a hold of front desk at hotel. What a mess! I'm sure between hotel and Hotelplanner I'll be paying for a room I never stayed in. Would not recommend.
