"Fantastic experience"

"We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at your hotel. It was perfect for our family of 5...having a hideabed in the room was huge. Everyone was able to sleep on something comfortable. Also, the breakfast offered is wonderful. Loved the scrambled eggs and bacon...food of substance. Plus the additional options of Danishes and waffles, etc was great. Great pool and waterslide for kids...hot tub for the adults! :) And the front end staff was a delight to deal with. We will definitely stay again!"

"Will stay there again"

"Hot breakfast a winner, and free parking a bonus. Beds were comfy, and room was clean. Little tricky to find the hotel, but now that we know the location, no problem. Bar size fridge would be nice, but we survived. ORA restaurant across the street was great. Shopping nearby."

"Very satisfactory medium-priced hotel."

"The hotel is generally excellent. My only criticism is that the doors to the rooms and corridors need adjustment so that they don't slam shut with a loud noise. While there is no food available in-house,good restaurants are nearby."
