Counter service was good, bed was not good for my back and neck. At 9.40 am the house keeping were knocking on the door, but thought 10.00 am was the checkout time. But it was good stay overall.

Bedsheets could be cleaner. Definitely need a better blanket. Water pressure in shower is dismal. Staff are awesome. The person at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. I unfortunately don’t remember her name but she was an absolute delight to deal with. Would definitely stay there again as I travel up north for work. Nice bar setup and the food was amazing

World's smallest hotel rooms
The hotel rooms are tiny! Beyond belief. It is impossible to brush your teeth without banging your head on the shelf let alone try and fill a jug. The beds are trampolines, you just bounce all over the place. It was clean we will give it that but the rooms are not suitable for long stays. The breakfast however is outstanding and great value for money! Compliments to the chef.
