I liked the buffet breakfast which was $22 well worth it. It could probably do with abit of work. Still seems as if the decor is back 30 years ago. Saw a few patches on the wall which had been painted over. But overall good stay robably not somewhere I would recommend.

Great service, clean and tidy, sorted my parking, friendly reception, 24/7, delicious dinner at Jimmy's kitchen! I would have liked the hours of the kitchen to be extended for dinner times, however staff was very accommodating and have let us have dinner outside their hours 👍😍 thank you!
