Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is our second time we’ve stayed here and we opted for a room with a spa pool. Main living & dining area with a separate bedroom, large bathroom, 2 TVS, cooking facilities, and the covered exterior spa. My only criticism relates to the floor covering around the spa otherwise we were very comfortable during our stay over 3 nights here. All of staff were friendly, helpful, and we look forward to our next little getaway here at the Braeside.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A disappointing stay for a Best Western. Very tired grounds and units. It was being used for emergency housing which brought quite a lot of noise to the complex. Staff seemed quite uninterested. Had hopedcfor better.
