Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities




8/10 Very good

Good budget stay, some improvements would make it
In general a good budget stay. Room was clean and well presented. Bathroom was functional and well stocked with toiletries. The lobby was quite fancy, as if trying to emulate a more upmarket hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. There were self service check in/out kiosks which were useful at busy reception times. One of the two lifts didn't work but hadn't been locked out, so would still get called, then wouldn't accept any floor requests. As floors 2 and up were only generally accessible by lift, this made it frustrating to get to our room. The beds were not very comfortable, we looked under the mattress and several slats were broken. There was a noisy, ineffective portable aircon unit in the room. There was a lot of Christian stuff everywhere. Bible verses on the walls and leaflets in the rooms. It was a bit OTT. In general, a good value budget hotel for a couple of nights' stay, but it would have been better if money had been spent on maintenance rather than features.
