This is no way 4 stars place, I would grade as 2 stars max. Customer service is great that’s all that is great, rooms are just awful, balcony completely covered in birds droppings, doona is so thin and cheap, throw over blanket covered in big holes. Room tired, carpet really worn out. Asked for room to be cleaned was told they are too busy will clean it once I was gone. The cups were chipped, no conditioner and not the place fault but there was screaming kids next to me could not sleep
