Poor ammenities
The room was fine except for a few things. 1. The wifi signal inside the room is poor. Had difficult to connect with phones. 2. Unable to connect wifi for more than 1 connections 3. The television is signal is bad. Difficult to change the channel and adjust the volume using the remote. 4. The entrance door has no 2nd locking as it is faulty. 5. No power point near to the beds. Inconvenience to charge the phone and need to search for power points.

Finishings a bit run down, linens are old, bathroom quite dirty. A good spread offered for breakfast though. Good selection of cereals. The muesli is commendable. Good location, several shopping centres within 10 minutes walk.
