Nice Hotel but a little out of town. The Room needed air conditioning as it was hot during the day and night. Had good parking and the food was very basic menu.

Poor Air quality in the room.
Room was old and in need of renovation. No air circulation at all in the room. Very stuffy, even with the window wide open.

5/5 Excellent

Pleasant business overnight stay. Will stay again
I only had a brief stay, arriving late and leaving early but will happily stay again. The staff were friendly and courteous, the room clean and spacious and the breakfast was good too. Can't ask for more than that on a quick business stay!
