Good Central Location

Good sized room, close to shops and very convenient being able to get a meal downstairs. Bathroom a little dated, but clean enough.

really disappointed

Pros: Central location
Cons: Sound proofing e.g. Thicker windows, door seals?
Location: Check out the library.. Amazing
Really noisy environment and creaky rooms, the main issue was the room is adjacent to the Evap cooler for the kitchen cool room and yes it is LOUD! Tissues in the ear stuff. So if you are on a work trip and need a good rest, I don't recommend.

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Staff greeting to start.
We were greeted by less than enthusiastic staff. A beer in the bar downstairs was $9. The rooms were old - that was okay but there was hair in the bath/shower and on the bed head. The bed was comfortable.
