Lovely hotel that offers value for money. The timely location of the hotel with its competitive prices just makes it the perfect choice among the rest. The bad side however is that there are inconsistencies in the quality of the food. I feel that the hotel can improve on this one. But overall this is a good place to rest... More

I checked in very late in the evening and even though their card machine wasnt working, they still allowed me to check in and get some rest. Their consideration and great service would only continue through my stay. This hotel is clean, excellently located and has amazing service.

-Panels are not as efficient as air cons, so I suggest both of them to be functional so that it will be up to a guest to use the preferred. -A small bar fridge is recommended. -Overall, great service.

The air conditioner in the room I stayed in was not functional and there was no electric blanket to mitigate that adverse realization. It was a very cold winter night and I did not like that experience at all.

Dear Jubilant I would like to apologize that your experience was not of the high standards that we strive to meet to the point where we may have completely tarnished your impression of the Morning Star Express Hotel. My concern apart from the Air conditioning unit was the you did not enjoy the experience at all. One element that we... More

The lady at reception was extremely friendly. She made me welcome. The checking in procedure was smooth and prompt. Unfortunately I did not take her name but I checked in on 16 July 2014 at about 20:00

Thank you for the stay we had. Just wish when i checked in the gentlemen explained that there is a extra amount for parking. Didn't mind paying it but would be nice to have everything explained. Lovely place. Love the white sheet too.

Overall service from staff was very good; food was fresh and well cooked - excellent chef; conferencing centre was good. Challenge with room, cleaning not up to scratch e.g. glasses in bathroom not washed, bin looked horrible, not emptied; bed is noisy and uncomfortable; bedding looks very old and stained; TV constantly freeze. Safe parking
