Arrived back at the room after dinner etc and the air conditioner would not work. Could only open all windows to get cross flow .....neighbours (permanent tenants) below smoking non stop on their junk filled balcony....Called the reception... More

Very bad,the shower screen was damaged, they were cockroach, worst of all the sofa in the lounge room was terrible and uncomfortable, clothes line stand was broken ( hurt my finger) and very dirty balcony. I don't recommend for anyone might as well pay $50 or $100 extra for a better stay.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager who gave us a low down on the hotel and showed us how to get our bearings. Our room was very commodious... More
