good location, clean & economical. Food good standard, but restaurant menu could be slightly expanded. Would stay again. Cereal selection for breakfast needs to be expanded, to include healthier options

Nice clean hotel. People at reception desk were very helpful and polite allowed us to store our luggage after check out and was able to come back and pick them up. One even gave us places we might like to visit while our room was getting ready.

We stayed for 16 nights. Overall the property was fairly average, but with no other hotel style options in the area it is well frequented. The hotel is pretty tired, the halls and rooms are in need of an upgrade with new carpets, paint etc needed. The 2 bed apartment was ok in size, the small kitchenette was fine for...
