From the outside this place looks like a 1950s motel that has been done up. But once inside it is obvious that the people behind the Zen have a good appreciation of what's important.
Fast wireless (around 20mb/s), great beds, reminiscent of the Westin's 'Heavenly' mattress, and a shower with lots of pressure.
There were other nice touches as well, such as the nicely landscaped garden sitting area out the back door of the unit and a good array of coffee, complimentary chocolates and quality linen.
Best accommodation of our trip so far!
