Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Our reservation stated the hotel was in Balateer however the hotel is in Bramaer 16 miles away. The address also shows Balateer. They had said they have tried to get it corrected three times to no avail. We had paid for breakfast was was told we had to pay until we confirmed with reception.
