The staff was helpful and accommodating, even late at night after a tiring day, accommodating me in the dining hall after closing time, as I had nothing to eat the whole day. Staff was friendly and accomodating.

Terrible reception and rotten food served during my stay, I would like management to seriously look into the matter and investigate,I will appreciate response to the above issues (staff morale/behavior/poor quality of food served to customers) in order to improve the quality of our service.

My overall stay was pleasant, bedroom was excellent, wifi was also excellent but felt the bathroom and wardrope was a bit old and the bath tub too narrow. The breakfast and dinner meal options were very limited.

The hotel and service offered appears to be efficient and effective and it meets the standard of the area. Breakfast was very good and the staff members were warm and welcoming. This is an area wherein I would not hesitste to visit in future.

The service I received during my stay at the hotel was super and the room met my expectations. The staff members at the hotel were responsive to my needs and their turn-around time was so quick. I enjoyed the food, especially the breakfast.

I have stayed here on a number of occasions, out of necessity and not choice. The staff are very friendly and helpful but the property is in desperate need of refurbishment, particularly the bathrooms, furniture and decor in the rooms. Good central location.

the rooms are good but I was not certified with the bathroom especially the shower located in the bath tabs. ill suggest that in the near future you design rooms without bath tabs, because you bath tabs are small for a huge person like me to take a bath especially using the shower within the bath tab.
