Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The central location is a draw, though restaurants are scant in the surrounding streets. The breakfast includes hot carbs, quite enjoyable. The view of the lush green park in the roundabout was pleasing. Staff were always pleasant, smiling, polite and willing to help. However, the cable TV says it has hundreds of movies... in reality, there were just fifteen movies, a range that would have been acceptable if the movie titles included high-brow ones.
