2/10 Poor

The bed was comfortable and it was quiet. We were charged $190 a night. No hairdryer, curtain needs fixing, mould in bathroom shower, bathroom door Jammed, no sharp knife, outside area was dirty and neglected. Maximum cost should have been around $130/night.

The room was very nice. Only one thought - the blue blanket on the double bed needs washing. There was a food (??) mark on the underside that was a little gross.
