The staff is very friendly and they helped us with everything we needed since our arrival. The room was a bit smaller than expected from the pictures but all the amenities were present and our stay was pleasant.

I liked this place! The beds aren't comfortable though as it's a thin mattress on top of glass and the dining facilities could've been better, but good for a night or two.

Rooms were ok, very basic. Toilets could do with extra cleaning. The main reason I wouldn’t stay here again is because I found every single staff memeber to be rude and unhelpful. I booked two nights but only stayed one.
