Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property. We are extremely sorry for the breakdown of pillows. We prepare different type of pillows for guest's comfort. Please ask our reception next time. We will change to lower pillow. We greatly appreciate your comments about aspects of the room that need updating. We strive to improve with each and every stay.

Very handy location, clean and comfortable room, helpful staff. However aside from cups, saucers and glasses, there was no other crockery or cutlery. There was an extra charge of $10 if you wanted to use the laundry. A lot of road noise (but to be expected in that location). Very narrow and tight parking spaces so if another guest parked an inch or two off-centre, it made getting into the next parking space extremely difficult.
