The rooms are definitely very "tired" and in desperate need of refurbishment. That being said though my room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the shower water pressure brilliant.

The property was in a good location and the staff were friendly. Our room felt very tired. The ceiling fan was caked in dirt and dust. The bathroom is in desperate need of a makeover. The cupboard interiors and room corners were dirty. Cupboards had water damage. There were cobwebs visible on the ceiling. The hallway carpets were lifting and warped.

Rooms were too hot. 3 fans in room and both windows open still very hot. Rooms need aircon. Out of building looks very good but the rooms and hallways are looking very tired

Our room was okay. Only thing I would say is that one of the lights didnt work. But other then that, enjoyed my stay there with my family. Room service was fast and the food was actually nice!
