Great service and location :)

Lovely service at reception. Great location! Rooms are clean and aircon worked well except to remote to control so if you turn it off you have to go down to reception to get them to turn it on again. The bathroom was quite difficult to get in and out of the shower due to the way the sink was really close to the shower the door couldn’t open all the way.
