THis place was a bit dated and odd. It was set up like a motel with your front door opening up to a parking lot. The place seemed overpriced, but was clean. We plugged in a device to the electric outlet and it shorted out all the electricity in the room. The hotel fixed it, but asked that we not... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a studio room. It is centrally located and is only about a 15min walk to the city centre. The staff at the reception provided standard service but would not go 'above and beyond' with any questions we had about dining options. We actually found the book in the room more informative.

characteristic the architecture, there are several units. With the family of 4 we had a large apartment with a wide sitting room and kitchen completely equipped, two comfortable bedrooms - one at the upper level - and one bathroom. Located on a nice road, walking distance from some of the best restaurants and shops, not too far from the airport.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Camelot - good facilities and very centrally located, just a pleasant 15 minute walk to the heart of the city. Good parking, room condition average but we are critical mostly of the service - staff not very enthused to assist which is disappointing. Meals OK but not great, Breakfast expensive.

A fun little motel! It won't win any five star rewards but its clean, comfortable and completely acceptable for one or two night stopovers. Staff were great. Parking is a little tight, but manageable. All in all it was a good night during a business trip.

This motel unit was very large and kept very clean but the decor and lounge furniture are dated and in need of an update. The exception is the beds which were superbly comfortable. The only shower is over a very narrow old bath - tricky if you're travelling with grandma (and in a bathroom that big they could easily fit... More

It was a little dated and I would hate to stay there in Summer as the top bedroom got so hot, The window at room upstairs was in my opinion dangerous. It was quite low and the was nothing to stop it opening wide with a long drop to the ground.We felt as we had small children we couldnt risk... More

Unfriendly and really complicated Staff or Owner. My Booking was over Booking.com, but they need my Credit Card Details, because If I steal anything, thats unbelievable and ridiculous. The Milk was open and refilled. No Heater in the Toilet or Shower Area. The Toilet from the Neighbor and the Toilet in the Room was very loud. The Whole was very... More

Yes its a bit dated, yes the language barrier can be a nuisance, but if you are travelling in a group of 8 - 12, this place is perfect. We hired the venue adjacent to the Conference room. Easily sleeps 12, huge dining / tv area, large kitchen, own courtyard. The ideal accommodation for large groups or families.

A sizeable room with adequate self catering facilities. A typical urban motel with a view of either your car or somebody else's. The swimming pool is minuscule. The location is quiet but it is a lengthy walk to down town or to reach local eateries. An adequate base but not somewhere to spend time in the room or on site.
