Immaculate rooms

Guests are pleased with the excellent condition of the rooms, noticing that units are furnished to a high degree. They cannot fault the rooms as to their spotlessness and cosiness. As observed, each unit is equipped with facilities for comfort, convenience, and enjoyment. They laud the standard of cleanliness and the ample supply of essentials in the rooms.

Negative Reviews

Parking issues

According to feedback, issues are raised by guests as regards the parking facilities. They seem not to like the parking layout and lighting. As a result, guests find that parking is tight and their cars have to be parked farther from their rooms. Also, poor lighting is observed at night when getting to the rooms.

Odd reception

It seems unusual for guests to realise that the front desk is not attended by anyone. Rather, they prefer to have someone to greet them in person at the front desk when checking in, instead of speaking to a staff member via videophone.
