    Good location, nice facility

    4 person suite that held the family. Our own bathroom and shower. Fresh and updated. We didn't use the other amenities. Definitely recommend

    A little loud from some guests using the outdoor Café below our window but not bad.

    Location and the bar

    The staff were not friendly. The room had an innapropriate magazine left in it from, i presume, the last occupant. The shower room did not have the soap dispenser filled (it was empty). The TV stations kept losing reception. T
