Only thing I didn't like was the garage. Lucky I managed not to hit any of those concrete columns in it.

The night manager was rude and unhelpful from the phone call to say that the card had been declined so he was going to cancel our booking even though I had picked the pay on check in option to when we got there and I didn't have photo i.d. on me. Will never think of staying there or recommending it to any of my friends

The location and quality of the property is very good. However what I rated as excellent was their ability to handle a problem. We had a graduation to go to. Outside of their control the mains water was turned off for repairs. When made aware of our urgent need for showers etc to get ready for the graduation, the general manager of the complex personally walked us to a sister property nearby which had water. We are so grateful!

I really enjoyed this little hidden patio area in the centre of the hotel, and it was very close to where we were going. However they didn't clean our room without being asked and then they did a half job of it.

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We are happy you enjoyed the little patio on level 1, not many guests make use of it but glad you found it! Sorry to hear about the housekeeping issue you experienced, we usually service the rooms unless a do not disturb sign is on the door but we will definitely make note of this and relay it to our executive housekeeper!
