  • Disliked: Staff & service
Rattled my cage!

Your website indicated my bill would be $102; yet I was charged $400. I found it an embarrassing position to be in. My laptop went missing; after requesting a police report be filed, the laptop was returned the next day , when I was out. The New Manageress, Vicky, was upset about It and send the police report as if from her Home. The Reception Staff Member on Saturday admitted she had been having a nap when O tried to collect my luggage. I think they have staffing issues. I would like a refund. Nicky Bayley

    Great location. We has a motel style room that was very clean, very comfortable beds, excellent bed linen and towels. The common room and kitchen was clean and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and happy to help at all times.
