Great sized self contained unit without road noise

Pros: Good location, close to everything would definitely stay there again if I was to visit MacKay.
Cons: A clothes airer to compliment the washing machine and dryer. Security/Fly screen on sliding door or a ceiling fan for those warm nights.
Great hotel. Staff all friendly and accomodating. Serviced daily which included bread, jams etc, cereal, yogurt and juices every morning for breakfast.
