  • 4.0.Fair

    not going back again

    the room is very hot, no air conditioning. we left one of the access cards on the table in the morning before we headed out, the card went missing when we came back. on checkout, the hotel charged 3% on top of the booking, they said it was for credit card fees, but we would have paid by credit card on without the 3%.

    It was an ok stay, if what you are looking for is a place to stay the night. But I feel like they weren’t as prepared during breakfast eventhough it is advertised that kids eat free; imcomplete cutleries that took a while to be replenished, same with the food.

    Average stay at an average hotel

    The hotel is very ran down interior and exterior. It needs a make over! Great price point for families and everything that's required. The staff weren't very enthusiastic but pleasant enough I guess.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Room comfortable and tidy, breakfast was great and plenty of choices. One of the lights in the room wasn’t working. The mini fridge was wonky and fell off the little ledge and spilled water all over the floor and inside the fridge from the freezer tray, and all over the items inside the fridge (including the mini bar chocolate which was also expired). Little surprised there was no air conditioning as it was quite hot even with the ceiling fan on.
