Positive Reviews


Plenty of places to eat nearby

Get exposed to the north

Negative Reviews


Lacklustre lobby

The lobby and common areas of the hotel felt somewhat old when compared to the rooms, guests have noted. While it wasn't anything to affect your stay, visitors say the lobby could be a little nicer.


Won't drain away

Guests say the drains at the hotel take a long time to do their job which leads to water hanging out in your sink or shower for longer than you would expect. While it doesn't flood or anything like that, visitors note that is kind of annoying.


The bare essentials

The hotel does not offer free breakfast or an airport shuttle which guests say was disappointing given the price of staying at the hotel. You can purchase breakfast at the hotel's restaurant for an additional charge and there are several options from getting to the hotel from the airport.
