    We enjoyed the Esplanade. The staff were always vey pleasant and helpful. The hotel also had a wealth of tourist information making it easy to find our way around. We will definitely return to the Esplanade!

    The food is excellant both evening meal and breakfast. The restaurant should be advertised.

    I stayed in room 110 and it is an old room that could do with modernisation. The bathroom especially. Although the view was beautiful. There are very few facilities at the hotel. The bar is poorly serviced.

  • Older travelers
