Nova appears to be a nice hotel, it's truly just a typical one star dive as far as I'm concerned. Working there over the course of 6 weeks, my reservations got "lost" or "looked over" three times, causing me to move rooms every night of the week. The manager can be a complete amateur, by this I mean he is... More

Stayed here a month in the one bedroom suite while working in edson. Housekeeping came every morning at 6:30 am to clean room, and if I wasn't out of the room, they wouldn't clean, and wouldn't come back at a later time. After 5 straight days of not having my room cleaned and having to wash my own towels, the... More

Clean hotel. Friendly staff. Wifi has been a bit suspect sometimes but other than that. No complaints. Zorbas - pub attached serves decent food, it's not going to win any awards but nice enough.
