4/10 Fair

It was great to receive a message on how to gain access the lodge after reception business hours. But bitterly disappointed with my room position. I mentioned that I was leaving very early the next day (5am) then to find that my room was directly adjacent to the outside table and chairs common area. I could not get to sleep until everyone had left the area in and around 11pm! Very disappointed I myst say!

2/10 Poor

During the sleep time, really noisy to hear those people who walked to the corridor and close the door , cabinet and showering. The sound proof is so bad . It made me can’t sleep all night by those very loud noise. Won’t be a nice place to sleep,

8/10 Very good

Bring your own light into the toilet
All is good, except the toilet light and exhaust fan that switch off automatically (~15mins), so bring your own light into the toilet. Would have been better to replace with a motion sensors instead of using timer. Street parking is hard to find during the after school period ~3pm, when parents are waiting. It also get full at night. Would have been better to allow guest to use the parking lot in the back yard.
