Forty-five rooms decorated in a modern style and boasted all the requirements of the modern traveller including WIFI, fabulously comfortable beds and airy rooms. King sized beds, white walls, crisp white linen, tables, chairs and balconies adorn each room. The design was intended to be neat, spacious, convenient and effective.


Understanding that Cepha’s Inn would inevitably become an ambassador for its country, it was incredibly important that relationships with guests be one of the most notable and important parts of the business. Great efforts have been made to foster this, including competitions, prizes and awards to keep this all-important communication moving.
