Lonely Planet review
This solid midrange choice offers modern accommodation and a convenient location by the main road north of town. It’s set back from the road in a compound and there’s a swimming pool in a pretty garden. The hotel is popular with small groups and the 17 rooms have the expected comforts. The restaurant’s daily buffets cater to tourists.
