We have chosen this beautiful 4-star hotel as our guest accommodation because of its excellent location and facilities. The location is a 15-minute walk to our base for the boats and the city’s beautiful botanical gardens are close by. The elevated position of the hotel means that the rooms are light, quiet and well-ventilated. Even though the hotel has great access to our boats, there are no busy roads nearby and the hotel is far away from the street noises familiar to seafront or busy city locations.

The hotel is ideal for families or large groups and rooms can easily accommodate up to two extra beds. Spacious rooms are sound proofed with air-conditioned and equipped with TV and fridge. There is the option to upgrade to sea/city view rooms (ask us for details). The hotel has a well equipped gym, indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, games room, bar, restaurant with sea views and free parking for guests. A good buffet breakfast is included. A buffet dinner is served from 7.00 – 9:30pm every evening which costs approx 15 euros per person or 22 euros per person with unlimited wine & beer!
