!*Awesome place to stay & value for money*!
Great place, clean, value for money & so close to the shops! No issues with check in/check out. Staff at front desk were very welcoming & friendly! The room was just perfect for what we needed, the beds were very comfortable and warm there were extra blankets if needed and the room had a HEAT PUMP it was turned on before we even arrived we walked into a chilled room (very greatful as its summer) good comfort for summer/winter. Bathroom/shower very clean and convient good supply of cold/hot water and water pressure is strong. After hour access very safe, easy & simple. Undercover car parking was great felt my car to be very safe and secure heaps of car parks. Tones of plugs in room to charge phones, tablets laptops etc never ran short of power I counted 12 just in the room. Asked for more towels and the front staff were more than happy to give more (very greatful) the all you can breakfast included in the price was a gem.. heaps of food walked away feeling very fill :( Disappointments; Tv had no sport :( -Lady cooking the breakfast was very loud and was rude in some ways. Some of the sausages were burnt. Eggs were watery and didnt have much flavour. -Shower curtain a bit too long for shower -No mention of stairs on listing - 2 blocks of stairs to get to room (12-14 bigish steps) family member has heart/lung condition no good walking stairs. But pulling aside those small things id happily stay back here again!! Thankyou for making our stay here smooth!! :)
