This location of the property is good because its close to many amenities, i just think that the turn off sign from the main road should be made bigger in order for it to be visible for those who cannot see far.

The interaction with the day manager was very poor, service and quality of poor standards the room was not aired properly damp smell. Will not even recommend this place to anyone, for the price and quality you can get a better hotel at St Andrews like 3km away.

We received a commendable arrival welcome. Unfortunately, it was short-lived as the level of quality control and service deteriorated.

Water leaked from the shower to the bedroom. House-keeping services were inefficient; a...
