Word of caution: if you stay here, whatever you do make sure you check out by 10am as you risk being literally chucked out of your room! This happened to my friend and I after oversleeping on a Saturday morning [I was still jetlagged after trip overseas]. A knock on the door at 10.20am by the cleaner, and came in and abused us for staying past the 10am checkout time. I packed up my bags, and my friend had a quick visit to the shower. At 10.40am she came back, and proceeded to THROW our bags out of the room! When I interjected and said my friend was still in the bathroom and couldn't get changed she said she didn't care and then physically pushed me out of the room. She was over the top, rude and left a bad impression on this place. While admitting that we should have been more aware of the time and been out by the check-out time, I feel that some degree of leniency would have been the better option over being abused. Other staff were accommodating, and also back up other reviews that the place is tired and run-down.
