                  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

                  9.2

                  Rooms were not ready at check in time and then the room i was sent to wasnt clean.

                • Family with children
                  5.8

                  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.

                • Group of friends
                  9.6

                  Excellent service and very helpful staff who went out of their way to be helpful.
