"The building is renovated to a high standard and is a piece of history being the first telegraph post in Northern Europe. The owners and staff are all very proud of this building and made every effort to inform us about the history. The breakfast was beautifully served on the terrace which is clean and spacious like the inside of the hotel. This hotel offers both comfort and convenience like many but the service was perfect and we will stay again soon. The souk is on the doorstep and everything is within walking distance even the beach. The Hamam opposite the hotel is a typical (none tourist) bath house which is a must but not for the feint hearted."
