Pros: fantastic views, great location, very spacious, lots of room inside, plenty of spaces for cars, great views outside. Compared to prices you can pay elsewhere this was reasonably priced and pretty good value. Good layout.
Cons: dust everywhere in the room, filthy carpet near the kitchen area, wore socks and slippers and shoes as didn't want to walk about in bare feet. Dirty stain on the top bed sheet. Main bed sheets were clean though. Bathroom was clean but it was the finishing touches...such as the dust and fly ridden window sill, the blind was covered in dust. Wish we had requested a room on the upper floor so we could have seen the river view better as we had trees in the way. Having said all of this from looking at photos our room was certainly the nicest so we were quite lucky. Waited almost 40 mins to check out at 6am in the morning-the receptionist was on the phone for god knows how long to a customer and had another couple wanting to check out before us - made us late for a pre booked trip as didn't expect to wait so long to check out.
For the owners: replace the carpets with wooden or tiled floors for hygiene, scrub every room head to toe, we do notice the details in the room (dust and dead flies in windows). Train your receptionists to prioritise multiple tasks at hand. He should have put the lady on the phone on hold for the sake of a few minutes.
Would stay again as overall was reasonably priced and good location.
