6/10 Good

Okay as a roof over your head and good breakfast.
Front of house staff were not too welcoming. There were issues in the room of a bed side lamp not working and also poor intermittent WIFI signal. When this was pointed out, the front of house staff didn’t seem to be helpful and said it was my device. It wasn’t. That said, it was an average stay and only for the one night. Perhaps we were just unlucky with the room that we had. On the plus, they served a very decent and comprehensive breakfast catering for all tastes with a wide variety.

There was a party the night we stayed there. Loud music until 2am… But the lady at front desk was helpful and accommodating and found us a room as far away as possible from the event.

Charming stay, comfortable bed
The bed was very very comfy and the buffet breakfast was nice. The hotel itself is a bit dated but we didn't have a problem with it. The room and bathroom were very clean. The tv only played radio stations and a couple of channels but since we only stayed for a night this wasn't an inconvenience. The staff was friendly and the location great, near restaurants and grocery stores.
