    Do away with Smoking Rooms

    I was assigned to a smoking room despite indicating that I don’t smoke and preferred non-smoking room. I had to endure a pungent smell throughout the night.

    Mostly good

    Always a good stay .... the aircon unit was however making lots of noise during the night, resulting in less of a good night's rest.

    Great Location, friendly staff

    We only used the room for sleeping as we were visiting family, but it needed some touching up. Paint on back of bathroom doors chipped off. Drain for shower was loose. Not enough towels or coffee in room. And not enough tables for the morning breakfast rush. But the staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good and location was perfect.

    The propperty was great. I had a small issue with the check in, but it was because they had not received Expedia's confirmation, and neither had I.

    good family hotel

    Great supply run trip with the family. Nice comforting hotel with adjoining rooms, nice pool, play area, and dining. Love having the mall right across the street to easily visit during the stay.

    The grounds were very pretty. The staff were not friendly other than around the pool, restaurant and bar. The check in staff were rude and unhelpful.
