Rooms are spacious and decent size. Property has huge parking space and a large play area and a swimming pool (though charged extra). They have a game room as well and you cars for kids. Overall value for money.

I stayed in this hotel with family and had a worst experience related to room service , No stopper in bathtub provided and there is no provision to take bath, Front office staff was good. Don't go for big names like deluxe suite etc...
