All things considered, it wasn't bad. But it wasn't good either.
Biggest plus: Location is really convenient and there is free parking for the hotel (behind the hotel), about 8-10 cars.
Service was ok.
Breakfast was definitely pathetic for most people but for us it wasn't a big deal as we are not big breakfast eaters and can make do with just scrambled eggs and baked beans and acceptable coffee. Besides, there are lots of cheap eateries just outside.
Sheets and Towels were clean but somehow felt itchy. Not sure if it was the material or leftover construction fine dust that is all around the hotel as they seem to still be renovating.
We had the back most room on the ground floor, with a small window but the room still felt rather clusterphobic. The floor was not clean. The bathroom tiles were grubby with mould and hair and assorted fibres. Odd given that it would look like it was renovated not too long ago. Perhaps they need better housekeeping.
This hotel is not soundproofed at all! The main door is so light that we can hear every footstep outside our door. And we sure had a busy walkway as it leads to the carpark. You can heard your neighbours very clearly too.
Despite not facing the main road, some very loud groups (families, young travellers) will drive people who are sound sensitive very mad with the constant yakking at the top of their lungs. Demographics I guess.
I would pay a bit more for one of the newer boutique hotels on that stretch or play it safer with a proper 3-4 star hotel near Makota or by the sea.
I won't be back.
