Our stay was okay. Check in and check out was smooth. We arrived in the evening. A staff member called ahead to make sure someone would be available to check us in. The room was a little run down but the bedding was nice and clean. In the evenings, we often got cigarette smoke wafting into our room through the bathroom window (which did not close fully). We stayed for 4 nights and the room was not serviced in this time, even though the COVID policy was to service every 3 days.

This property was very new and well presented. The only negative is although there was a pull out couch for sleeping there was no bedding for this. Our son slept with us in the main bedroom while our other son slept in the single bed. Coffee mugs would be nice rather than the standard small cups everyone provides. That being said we will most definitely stay again.

Stayed for 4 days, not once was our room cleaned or fresh towels, toilet paper etc renewed. We are a family of 5. When we spoke to the hotel the first time about it they were going to bring us some towels etc but never did, wasn’t till our last night that we got towels. They said we’re meant to book in a room clean and it was all on the info in the room ( it was but was under red COVID setting, we were in orange). Very disappointed in the stay especially for the amount we paid.
