Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The whole place needs to be bulldozed down - It should really be classed as a condemned building !!! Rm 12 the aircon was like having a roadtrain in your room - so very noisy. The bed had springs popping up through the very well used mattress. Also staff came into our room when we were not there and decided to turn off our aircon. NEVER AGAIN WILL WE STAY HERE !!!!
