  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness
Just a little more attention to detail

Staff very welcoming and accommodating. Room needed to be aired out. Pillow or something needed to be washed or replaced.... room smelled like a clothes rack of unwashed second hand clothing found on an op-shop. Price was very good and met my needs
