The Good
Recent guests typically enjoyed their stays. It appears that the hotel has been renovating its rooms and this has made a difference.

They found the rooms generously-sized, quiet and clean. Guests appreciated the mini-fridges which had a freezer compartment and comfortable beds.

The breakfast was appreciated as adding value and offered fresh waffles and basic continental items.

Guests found the staff to be responsive, welcoming and helpful.

The location was handy to a good selection of restaurants and a sports bar in walking distance.

The price was right according to guests and many felt this was a good value choice, suitable for a short stopover or business stay.

Guests liked that they could use the indoor pool and hot tub at the Super 8 nearby, a 1-minute walk.

Wi-Fi was rated as good overall, and guests who spoke about the Wi-Fi seemed pleased with its performance.

The Bad
The hotel had a fair amount of negative reviews.

It seems that housekeeping leaves some of the rooms in an imperfectly cleaned state and these rooms are rented out without prior inspection. Guests complained of poorly-cleaned bathrooms and poorly-vacuumed rugs.

Some complained of very small rooms that were dated. Particulars were: old and stained bedspreads, dated furnishings, noisy fan in the bathroom, plumbing sounds, mould in tub surround and thin towels.

Once in a while, guests complained of older fruit being offered at the free breakfast.

It was mentioned that there wasn't much parking and the stalls were tight.
