Slow check in. Wifi is included but only works in the reception area. When we arrived at 8am for breakfast there was only powdered eggs and beans left. Toaster was not working, when we requested to speak to a manager he only arrived 10minutes later and wouldn't even consider to give us discount for the "meal". We ate breakfast for the remainder of our stay in town. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The restaurant has a two page menu but only half the items were in stock, slow service from kitchen. The chef decides how you want your steak prepared and disregards any requests. We ate elsewhere for the remainder. If you don't mind bad service and food this one is for you.
