  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

We had a short stop over night before leaving very early the next day (5:30am). It was clean and comfortable however the shower dripped constantly and this kept me awake. I ended up putting face washers in the base of the shower to deaden the noise. It was a very quiet neighbourhood and the Indian restaurant right next door was delicious.

People from The room next to us were very loud and disturbed our sleep. It would be good if you can walls with noise cancellation or something to ensure noise travelling is minimum as the rooms are together
