Room was just big enough for all four of us. I can't understand why people just hang round the hotel doing nothing, get out and explore the place. Parking... More

The breakfast and fitness facility was awesome! The room could use a renovation but it was comfortable and clean. The location was ok since we had a rental car. However, we had a hard time getting to city due to the road construction. It is not convenient to the city centre.
