Exceptional 10.0
perfect for our need walking distance to train station and bus stations
Katrina, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Hotel location was central to the city which was what we wanted. Parking was a big plus. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself was run down and well worn. New carpet throughout would do wonders. Cleanliness of bathroom could be better. Vacuuming the room carpet, particularly around edges of the room not just the main area is needed before check-in. Breakfast was good.

Great location, nice hotel
Excellent location. Walking distance to anything you need, or very close to the bus/train station if that's preferred. We had a room on the third floor, no lift but no issue for us. Breakfast was good and plentiful. No amenities like A/C, an ice machine or a fridge in the room - none of that was expected for the price. Also the room was a bit outdated but clean. Staff was friendly and courteous. Wi-Fi was in and out. We would stay here again.
