“Needs to move into the 21st Century”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

This place has friendly staff, but the rooms are so outdated with old T.V.s & old looking furniture, the bed was big & comfy though. It was very hot & humid on our stay but we had to leave the old air con off as it was too noisy to sleep with it on. The bathroom was not nice at all, something from the 70's even & not very clean, cracked tiles, very old bathtub & shower & it was not cheap. Corridors have obviously recently been re-carpeted & look fine but the rooms need major attention. Breakfast was awful, buffet style & greasy. They even had tinned fruit, blimey, you can buy fresh fruit at nearly every set of lights on the N2, what are they thinking.
