Location of property is amazing. Staff is friendly and very good at the duties . But the property itself is very dated and in need of a serious upgrade. Felt like I was in a nursing home. And for the money they charge definitely not worth it

Great location and hotel, staff at breakfast were great. Reception staff were not congenial. We had to wait until 4:45pm for our room - we’re weren’t happy but the lady at reception laughed at our situation (albeit nervously). Manager of hotel promised to see us later but he couldn’t be located.
