Very Average
Stayed 2 nights, upon check-in was given some milk for our room. The next day, there was no milk in our room, so proceeded to reception, to be told by the receptionist that they do not hand out milk on the second night. How pathetic

Poor 2.0
A very bad experience the stay at this place
When checking in, there were non speaking or reading english people at reception, was a very confusing situation. Complained about the toilet cistern, was broken and making a continuous high pitched noise after the first night. supposed to be fixed the same day, not so. Was told they couldn't do anything about it as it was old and broken, they wouldn't lay awake because of it , so shouldn't I . After a bid of a heated discussion told the man to leave my room ,and solve the problem the next day this was at night. Next day I was offered a different room. If the money was not already taken from my visa account I would have walked away. The room was two nights rehired again, to different People, without the problem being solved , the People complained about the problem, but were told nobody else had complained about the problem. I would never recommend this place to anybody, as they are no professional people that know how to deal with customers , and charge money for sleepless night . My brother and sister in law were offered two bars of chocolate when we were leaving . a very bad experience

Helpful manager on site
Toilet leaked. Fixed promptly by management. The people upstairs left the tap on and flooded their unit. Our unit bathroom floor was wet. Management was very apologetic.
