Nothing was likeable the room advertised in the photos was not the room we got. what concerned me the most was evidence the door had been forced open and poorly repaired, so security was an uneasy feeling. the fridge if you could call it a fridge was incapable of cooling. smoke alarms the base was painted over but no smoke alarm. we shifted rooms and the new one had no smoke alarm that was visible. parking on site was a joke. we had three nights there but left early could not handle any longer.

Dirty, poorly maintained and out dated property for the price. Staff didn’t even care when I said I was not staying my extra booked days and wouldn’t help with a refund, except to tell me to come back to Wotif - whose webpage wouldn’t provide me with a way to contact except a virtual help - who was no help!!! Still want to request a refund please!!! Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
