Pros: Large room
Cons: The room was extremely dirty. The door did not close properly. There was no hot water when I took a shower. The restaurant was not open Friday night and no hot buffet the next morning.

Pros: Location is great. Value for money for the extra spacious room.
Cons: Very old hotel. The hotel need renovation from the lift to the hallway to the rooms. I felt like going inside a hotel from the 90s. Perhaps that's why the rooms were cheap.

Pros: The location is wonderful. Sandwiched inbetween the Capital and great restaurants.
Cons: The property although clean, is in desperate need of upgrading. The staff was great. Friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Hope after their shut down and subsequent upgrade, they are able to keep the staff they have. That would make it a phenomenal hotel.
