Stayed here one night. It was a hot night but we couldn't have Windows open as they all just pushed out fully as worn out. Windowsill had dust and dead flys on it in bedrooms. When departing the next day we were still in our room at 9.50am waiting for our driver to return when cleaner just walked through door...

Horrible place too stay, got an abusive phone call after we left. Waste of money. Would have rather stayed in the car. The bed was very soft and uncomfortable. Safe too say we will never stay there again. The room was very out dated and unclean, made us feel like we were in a cell for the night. The shower...

We had a two room unit on the second floor, not flash but clean with everything a traveler needs. There is plenty of off street parking and a small family restaurant. Not central however there is a garage, fast food bars and four square right across the road. Limited free internet and very cheap to get more. I would certainly...

they need the reception to be open until at least 10pm and the phone from the unit to be answered 24/7. Did not appreciate arriving at 6pm and having to wait 5 minutes in the freezing cold waiting for someone to open up after having to call on a cell phone the number on the door. Later, we dialled "0"...

Stayed here on a work trip so wasn't expecting anything spectacular, and right I was. The rooms, the restaurant, the overall layout was just plain ordinary. The room decor was weak and the meal we had at dinner was overpriced for what was actually served on the plate, which in itself took far too long. An undercooked potato did not...

Don't believe a word they say about 'our place is yours, make yourself at home'. I've stayed in hotels/motels/airbnb the world over & never encountered a place quite like this - Fawlty Towers without the redeeming humour! Unapproachable, defensive & downright rude are apt adjectives for the proprietor & her off-sider. The only 'cheap' thing about this overpriced, drab &...

Proprietress and checkout receptionist quite unfriendly. Unwilling to accept feedback and questions without becoming annoyed and defensive. The 'Restaurant' meal was the worst I've ever had.
