Awful! Will never stay here again. Had an old man walk into my room before 7:30am as I was ready ready after my shower. Cleaner I think. No knocking, just opened my door and walked in. The awful owner took responsibility at least by saying it was her fault. No security! No way of locking and keeping staff out of your room! don't stay here.

We accept your review, but were disappointed that at the time you gave us no opportunity to apologies, explain or try to rectify the matter.

A feeling of home away from home. Dinner was delivered to my door and added to my room account so I could pay all costs at once.
