Reviewed 23 March 2017

The hotel itself is really original because the owner loved trains and put a lot of love into the interior decoration by using lots of train paraphernalia. The rooms are super clean and the breakfast buffet was great. The location is also excellent being just a short walk to the pier. The knowledge of local sites could have been better - we were pretty much on our own deciding what we could do in the area.

We stayed 2 nights at this special hotel, - built with love for railway stuff, which gave it quite a good atmosphere. We loved it, and the morning buffet is in the high end - nothing missing.
Very recommendable!

this simple hotel (but not the rates !) is not recommendable.
Simple and dark rooms, dirty disgusting pool, unfriendly staff and a moderate breakfast (it was replenished nothing).

The rooms at poolside are very noisy because they are poorly soundproofed and the people sitting at the bar making noise all night. Complaining was useless.
At all : not worth the money.

Room Tip: all rooms are noisy and poorly soundproofed

I have not been here for a good couple of years, they have done a lot to the hotel, my room is good comfortable well organised has all the amenities that one would want, clean and neat, good TV reception (a bit limited but adequate for general use) close to everything, the bar needs some local beers but a great place to meet. Try it worth a visit will let you know about the breakfast

The hotel has a theme of South African Railways. It is done in wood and is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and the dining hall is very charming. It also has a small swimming pool. We visited in winters ( July). It was a very comfortable and memorable stay.
