Property was not clean. Stains/Marks on the floors in the foyer and in the room. Very noisy. No facilities/services available after 9pm, including no food/beverage. Very old and tired furniture. Staff seemed inconvenienced during check-in.

Save money enjoy comfort
It's one of the peacefully situated very neat and clean and comfortable. Though I live only 20km away from hotel still I book and enjoy. It's very presentable. Just needs some halaal food for Muslim people so it can be more famous to even dine there. One suggestion to the owner try to build a massive comfortable swimming pool with all luxury around the pool.
