I was in town for two nights and wanted a place walking distance from a dinner party I was attending. The one room + bath arrangement is a decent size, with minimal frills, but was nicely kept up and very clean. The TV is a new flat screen with lots of channel and the WIFI was reliable and fast (and included). The air conditioning unit is modern and quiet.
The staff were very helpful and friendly - I got effusive apology for keeping me waiting all of 45 seconds at check-in. I wish all the places I stay were that service-oriented.
NB: There is no iron or ironing board in the room, but there is one in the laundry room near the office that is free to use.
I did not get a chance to try the restaurant located on the same property.
