I was very satisfied, everything was very uncomplicated, easy check-in and check-out. Very friendly, attentive staff. My accommodation was clean, tidy and quiet. What I really enjoyed was: The aircon, fan and fridge didn't make any unnecessary noise.

8/10 Very good

It is budget accommodation but it contains everything needed for an overnight stay. The room was clean and it's in the middle of everthing. Information required for arrival arrangements were received by sms which made the process easy. There was a problem with a PowerPoint and wifi which was sorted out immediately. Only one entrance/ exit for car park and no turn around point, so not good if you're towing.
