Good 7.8 From 188 reviews

Very good 8.0
Bike friendly .....sort of
Enjoyed the stay overall. Breakfast was good. The rooms were very hot and had no air conditioning. Is a very bike friendly place, with great wash and lockup facilities - apart from no facility to charge an e bike.

Too hot to handle
For a family of four the room was the right size but there were some issues. The room was too hot especially with one ceiling fan. Only supplied two towels, mugs. We have to ask for more towels. I am not sure about the cleanliness of the place as I had to shift the bed to be closer to the fan, and underneath the bed had some rubbish. One good point is the swimming pool as the kids enjoyed it.

Hotel needs a good clean/repainting refurb
Bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The room service food was excellent. Unfortunately the room and hotel was very dirty and dusty. I found someone else’s medication under the bed. Paint was flaking off the walls.

Good 6.0
The photo was showing Spa. So I booked this hotel. But the Spa looks like it was closed a long time ago. You should delete photo of Spa form this site. The restaurant was dark. So the restaurant looks very old and cheap. It's like a restaurant in a country motel. They should open the blinds and get more light. We stayed in suite room 100. The mattress is old and needs to be changed? the ranch elder would not work. it had come off of its track. I fixed it for you free of charge.
