The weather was very hot while we were there... More

As a frequent traveler, I don't like to have a lot of "issues" arising at places I stay. And there were a number here. First off, there's no aircon at this hotel, so I turned on the ceiling fan. It was noisy, so I asked for another fan, and one was brought in immediately. Fair enough. Next, some guests and... More

My family and I enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return. As we were on a budget the location to supermarkets and the dishwasher in the rooms when doing our own cooking was great. With the new kitchen in the two bedroom unit making cooking a breeze. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
