I was picked up on time at the airport by a driver from the hotel. The hotel's location is excellent, being in the center of Stonetown, a 10 minute walk to the old fort. Registration was quick. A cold drink was very welcomely provided during sign in. The spacious room had a queen size bed , a tv, and air conditioning. The room was clean, well appointed, with high ceilings. The bathroom was spacious with large marble tiles, and a huge shower head with plenty of water pressure. WIFI was provided but only worked in certain locations. Breakfast, served outdoors on the rooftop, was included and ample. The hotel exceeded my expectations and was a very good value.
