The Good
This hotel was favourably reviewed by most guests, in the reviews sourced for this analysis. 

Many seemed to have enjoyed the rooms and said they were clean and comfortable. The beds were highlighted by lots of guests who said they were comfortable and a couple of guests said rooms were spacious.

The staff received high scores from reviewers who said they were very accommodating with requests, pleasant and professional.

The food and breakfast at the hotel's restaurant was very much enjoyed by guests for its high standard of quality, flavour and the staff's attentive service. Some of the guest's comments were: "delicious well-priced breakfast" and "amazingly good food".

Location was another big plus for this hotel for being near to Casino Rama, highways, the folk festival, the opera house and fast food restaurants. Some guests were quite happy to have a shuttle service to the casino which was a fraction of the cost of a taxi.

Some one-time compliments were: a real business centre (separate room), good family atmosphere, given an early check-in, served tea in lobby (to one person) without charge, grounds nicely maintained and facilities very clean.
