I liked the rest area : the kitchen is useful, there are games and also a "TV" room. That's nice. The room was comfortable The breakfast is included in the cheap price and was great.
I didn't like the bathroom. I excepted a much more clean bathroom. Not everything was working.. a bit far from my room and only one for a lot of rooms.
We paid for a private room and the double bed was incredibly lumpy and uncomfortable, so much so that I abandoned my partner to the relatively un-lumpy side and slept in one of the bunk beds.
Close to the zoo, beautiful location, friendly staff, great parking. Overall a good value.
The breakfast was disappointing, with only toast waffles oatmeal and apples and the bathrooms on the second floor had bad lighting, scary to take a shower in, and while leaving a bug scattered across the room
The pictures of the room did not match the actual room
The room could have been what was advertised
It’s incredible how nowadays a place doesn’t have AT LEAST some dumps to separate and then recycle the “trash”... the “multi-containers” in there were all the time full of this POTENTIAL recycling! super baaad in that aspect, no conscience
