4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Stayed 1 night in Mar 2020



    Stayed in room one and very noisy with toilet next door creaking floor boards above so you heard every movement above

    Stayed 3 nights in Feb 2020

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Both desk receptionists were very pleasant and helpful allowing us to use the parking pass as soon as we arrived (quite before the typical checkin time. She also allowed me to access the room when ready at 1 pm instead of 4, having arrived from an overseas fight. The rooms are small of course, as expected. The connected luv was a warm and pleasant place and saved us 2 Sunday roast dinners past the 4 pm serving cut off so we could finish our 1 afternoon of sightseeing. As they state, there is no lift so be prepared to climb stairs or request a low floor if needed. A good value for the room rate.
