        Hotel location is perfect for everyone in centre of town and pricing reasonable, at it is really a family hotel. Food was good with wide variety to choose from.

        Parking limited and very ackward to park, not easy for new drivers. Not sure if there's alternate parking for mini buses. Parking should be free for all hotel residents it does not matter long you booked for.

      • Single
        9.6
