    Stayed right at the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak. Not a good time to stay anywhere, but made to feel comfortable during our short stay.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    We stayed here for one evening and had a double room with 3 people. The room was clean and well presented but outdated. The one thing that really stuck out was the bathroom and the toilet seemed to be squeezed into the room between the vanity and the wall and was quite uncomfortable to sit there.
