Good place located at the centre of the city . Nice staff would surely visit again. Room for improvement is there but is worth every penny for the price you pay. Will visit again . A Special thank you to all the people of saffron who made our stay very nice and helped us whenever neccessary in any way

There has been no renovation for a while... More
