Didn't get off to a great start as i booked the taxi through the hotel (the management strongly recommended it). Here I was at the airport but no taxi. Many taxi operators constantly hassled me as I stood outside the airport for half an hour. Eventually I had to put my trust in one of the locals and tell them i was waiting for a taxi to Kelly's Hotel. He promptly made a phone call & said a car was on it's way. Sure enough 5 minutes later a car turned up & the driver had a card displaying my name. Hesitantly, i boarded the taxi. Ten minutes into the journey i was informed by the driver that he would have to go back to the airport to pick up another fare. So here i was, sitting in the taxi by myself on a dark highway in the middle of nowhere, at 10pm. Five minutes later, out of the darkness, a young male appears. I unlock the car doors, he jumps in (can't speak any english) & proceeds to drive to my destination. I arrive at Kelly's Hotel & thankfully Tim is at reception. He takes care of my taxi bill & shows me to my room. From then on it's great. Large clean room with balcony, good bathroom, comfortable bed. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are very friendly & accommodating. Apart from the taxi experience (Next time i will book taxi through my travel agent), Kelly's ticks all the boxes & definately deserves the great reviews
