The rooms were awkwardly set up with few plugs and no place to store belongings. Poorly lit and the washrooms were too small to use comfortably for showers, etc. The staff service however, was wonderful and fantastic buffet breakfast.

my girlfriend stayed here with 2 children recently. It was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Very noisy all night so we could not sleep. In the morning the breakfast food was old and cold. Not edible so we could not really eat it. Please do not stay in this hotel, it needs reporting to the health department.
