    Good value for money

    Ac Unit in the room very noisy and impossible to use due to this reason. Limited choice of tv channels; Lobby area not very attractive and not compelling to use other services such as bar and restaurant; could do with a revamp

    Found a cockroach crawling around the breakfast buffet area and alerted a staff member. He just effortlessly took a piece of toilet paper, reached over the counter to squash it, and then nonchalantly continued with his duties.
