Not much to like. Everything was run down and old. Our bathroom was like a toilet block at a camp site.......shower curtain blowing in the breeze, toothpaste stains and no soap holder. The air conditioner was really noisy but cold. The toaster didn’t work unless you held the button down. Don’t get excited about a dip in the pool.....it is a hole in the concrete.

I very much appreciate that it is a pet friendly hotel. The rooms are nice and clean. It’s nothing fancy but good for the price.

A barely adequate place to stay. I arrived to find the office closed although it was only 5:00 pm, and while I was able to get the receptionist on the phone and get my key, the welcome was hardly warm. While I did run into someone who might have been the manager the following afternoon, she didn't introduce herself and seemed surprised that there was someone in the room she had directed me to. My room was not serviced that day. The information in the room about where to eat etc. was out of date.

Liked the location and the staff. Room was not as expected, false advertising. No sofa as displayed in the photo of the room. Booked a delux room, got a standard. No hot water for showering until raised concerns. Car parking problems.
