Wonderful stay, all the facilities are clean and new. Unlimited wifi provided and free table pool in bar area, guest also enjoy discount for drinks. Free simple breakfast. Just two things might bother, long stairs not good for big luggage. Nearby very hard to find parking

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I booked a queen room with balcony through Expedia and was deceived by the advertising. We arrived late in and were put in a back room with two single beds, no windows or balcony which I had not booked. I would have booked elsewhere if this was to be the case. Breakfast was advertised too, however it was just cereal in a very dirty kitchen area, thats it. The person who checked us in was rude and unaccommodating and said they didn't even have rooms with balcony's, however when we went upstairs there was a room in use with a balcony, so devious and dishonest. The place smelt badly of damp mould and rot, was very disappointing.
