Score from 927 reviews Very good
Man,the daily breakfast is aplenty though i wish they could provide eggs to go with.
It rained daily througout the trip.In future,I hope the hotel could provide packaged trips to Premium Outlets.That will be good for us from Singapore.
Everything. Frendly personal, clean room, good location, afordable price, comfortable bed.
Checking out to leave and not coming back.
Dirty bathtub/sheets/bed cover/floor, unsafe, no elevators, noisy, unpleasant breakfast, not trained staff (hardly spoke english), recepcionist with bad appearance. Not worth the amount paid at all.
Doors slamming constantly
Friendly staff Laundrette opposite so we were able to leave our washing and collect later Parking was a big bonus
Toilet became blocked/backed up soon after our arrival and we were offered to use the toilet at reception. For the cost of the room we should have been offered an alternate room or blockage cleared.
The location was good, but the hotel was just par. The staff was very helpful.
Didn't know the hotel allowed smoking and the walls were paper thin.
I thought it was too pricey for what you received.
Nothing. Even the toilet paper was cheapest stuff possible
Cheaply furnished rooms. Smelled like dirty carpet. Cheapest toilet paper. Parking for maybe 1/2 the rooms. Just over priced for the quality. Location is not enough to charge this much.
Close to town
Small room Small beds No elevator Limited parking Room smelled bad
Location only. Needs updating. Could be great hotel.
When we required a second wash cloth the clerk responded very quickly, as he did when we had difficulty understanding the T.V. remote.
Parking was very difficult, with the spots being extremely close. If the care next to you was even a little bit on the dividing line, you had difficulty squeezing in. We got a significant scratch/dent on our car from the pillar in our first attempt to park. I suppose the rates were comparable with other sites in today's economy; but the rates seem a bit high for having a room in which to sleep and shower, and with no view at all, nor easy parking, nor close proximity to sites to visit.
The room was not clean. The coffee make was not clean and the head board on one bed was dirty. The sheets had stains on both beds.
Staff was very friendly and cooperative
Rooms were not well maintained and in poor condition.
Condition of facilities
Excellent staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Definitely went the extra mile to help.
The rooms are exceedingly gloomy and quite claustrophobic as a consequence. Bathrooms are dated and the porcelain is very worn. And just why do other guests think it is acceptable to speak to each other at normal volume (in other words, very loudly) during quiet hours in the central public area. I've never known such inconsideration anywhere else in the world - perhaps a gentle reminder to guests via notices or at check-in would help reduce the problem.
If you want to sleep at night do not stay here. It was so loud every night we were here.
-toilet didnt flush, and one time overflowed, so had to change rooms again -show pressure poor -bedboard broke off the wall the first night, within 5 mins of being there, so we had to change rooms, on another level of the hotel, with no elevator. -no security, anyone can walk into hotel. -not enough car spaces - not able to talk to management with all these problems -stayed 3 nights and each day we had to get our keys reset, unable to leave early as it was already paid for. -no fridge, and when asked for a fridge for medication storage, was told there was a $20 per day fee. Overall, a very frustrating stay with poor customer service skills and this place was overpriced for the run down facilities
dingy, frayed towels and linens, dingy ironing board, smudges on walls
weak wireless signal, bad breakfast
You have to carry your own luggage up the stairs (no elevator) Price for that hotel shouldnt be more than $80 a night. "Breakfast" consisted of coffee, juice, danish, bananas, and what it look like cereal but no milk. When i asked the lady for milk, she didnt have any. Will not stay there again, would rather pay a little more and get a better hotel.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Can not consider the breakfast offered, a continental breakfast. Breakfast included: coffee/tea, bagged pastries, bananas, mysli, water and orange/apple juice. No milk for the mysli or yogurt.
The room reaked of cigarretes , didn't have enough parking spaces had to park a mile away
The location is good, although there are many more hotels nearby that are better.
We had to bring up our luggages all the way up to 2nd floor. The hotel doesn't look that proper from the outside. Will not recommend this. Breakfast choices was very limited.
The location was great.
Towels are old thin and hard
