Having read other balanced reviews, I have little to add . Very clean and well run if, perhaps, a little over regimented. For example, guests do not have control of aircon units. Management have the remote controls!
The proximity of of the main road and railway line has been mentioned and I was told that due to a recent death on the line, trains are now blasting their horns as they pass .It is a major detraction ,in my opinion, as it is very intrusive. I even spotted the owner with her fingers blocking her ears.
This place is quite ok but why stay is such a noisy place when you have a choice?
