Very good customer service and system. Clean everything in room, free parking, good location. Pillows could be better than too soft.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
I didn't feel that the room was cleaned properly and during the corana virus pandemic I felt it was a vital service, I booked a queen bed and whilst I received a "king" it was two single beds pushed together which was quiet uncomfortable for me and why I book for queen. The best thing about the room provided was the sunshine that poured in every morning.

Great location easy to get to places of interest,however car-park is too small and you cannot utilise a toaster due to smoke alarm being too sensitive.
