Room for four people only had two towels, bath tap ran water out of it the whole time the shower head was on. Have been waiting four days and still don’t have my security deposit back after being told it would take 2 days. Tv in our room didn’t work. Price was good, room was clean, beds were comfortable.

4/10 Fair

Disclaimer: I am disabled and wheelchair-bound, and this review is in-line with the hotel knowing my requirements at the time of booking. First of all, disabled access was next to nil. My partner asked reception to allow us to use the elevator (disabled access was only via a lift in the carpark/basement, whereas reception was on the ground floor) so that I could come up to pay for the room (as it was in my name) - they would not allow her to do so until the room and deposit was fully paid. I was waiting alone for at least 20 minutes during this interval. The elevator could barely fit a collapsible self-propelled wheelchair, let alone anything beyond that. The room itself was BARELY wheelchair accessible. The front door did not stay open, and constantly swung back onto me. The bathroom door was wide enough... But the door could not open more than 50cm due to the bed obstructing it, making the accessibility obsolete. While there was a shower chair and assistive handles in there, access itself was minimal. I would not suggest this hotel again at all to anyone with any sort of mobility requirements.
