Cheap and nasty
Hotel was noisy, people drinking alcohol, yelling and fighting all hours of the night. My room wasn’t serviced for the three days I was there. Common room kitchen had not many utensils and the free bbq took me 30 minutes to clean before I could use it.

You have asked me to review this place? I actually never got the chance to stay at this place, I’m sure it’s great. After my work was put on hold until next year due to the pandemic. I had to cancel, I tried several time via your app, like I did with all my other travel plans. For this one it doesn’t seem to want too! After finally getting an email confirmation that it was stopped. I then got a phone call from a very rude lady from the hotel asking where I was?! She told me that I should not have booked with your app & should have booked directly with them. She was not happy with me & seemed to not understand to the concept of a booking app. Very disappointed.
