Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Arrived after checkin time but was told rooms werent ready..They had to move us to different floors different from what we booked (connecting). Both rooms fridge not working, one acond was on super cold and cannot be adjusted and one safe was faulty. These were reported on day 1, 2 and 3 but noone came to do anything. Fortunately we had a parking space given so thats a big thanks. On checkin day, the lady who was doing the checkin was not very friendly but fortunately her partner helped us out. Breakfast was good and staff there were very friendly and helpful. Overall I was pretty disappointed as I have stayed there pre Covid and was then impressed but not now.

Very nice stay. Carpets are dated and needs thorough cleaning or replacing. Breakfast was good, but the staff was too eager to clear the tables, even when I had a full plate of food as I went to refill my coffee
