10/10 Exceptional

Mr. Raza is a pleasing host, it was a short stay, the property is nothing fancy, quite basic, no frills, most importantly close to town centre.

8/10 Very good

I booked the hotel in need of a place to sleep after travel. The room was a bit bare, as expected from the price, but a comfortable bed and a quiet atmosphere. The friendliness and overall welcoming feeling of the attendant was what made this stay a very pleasant surprise and made me wish I had a bit more time other than just sleep.
