5/5 Excellent

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Staff was great, apart from being so close to the fire station which can be heard at night, it was great. Some of the toilet and bathroom facilities could use some maintenance and repair. Overall really good stay.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I don’t have any likes for the property, the bed was a little uncomfortable, the people were loud-ish, the place was confusing, the room was really small. The price was definitely worth the room and amount of nights.
