Our room was terribly "Musty" with no ventilation. Had to leave front door open if we wanted some fresh air. Could not sleep because of the smell of cigarette smoke. Did not request a Smokers room. Amentites were really Old fashioned for the price we paid.

The staff member at checkin was helpful about local amenities. The room was well cleaned, and had space for a sofa which was nice. But the cold tap in the bathroom gave a dreadful screech - the tap stem/washer needs replacing. The TV turned itself on at random intervals (including 2am) until turned off at the wall.

Room was very clean and comfortable. Shower was very good, good pressure. Toilet seat was loose and cold water tap was very noisey so not usable.

Easy to find, but the condition of the room my family stayed for 3 nights was bad enough. Wifi connection is not that good. Our 3 nights was too pricey for the condition of the room

I booked a queen room that stayed on the website was recently renovated. My room certainly wasn’t that (room 8). I also had a phone call approx 4-30pm after checking in at 2-30pm. Number I didn’t recognise so I didn’t answer it. Listened to the voicemail next morning. It was reception telling me that she charged the $200 security deposit to my card but not the $140 fee for the stay. Mind you I paid that to her in cash !!! Considering the place was absolutely dead at the time I fail to see how you can’t recall getting cash
