Definitely only worth what we paid for. Friendly reception staff.
Paper thin walls Rooms smelt very dusty/musty like it had sent been opened in months. Very old and dated.
The resident ducks!
No heating on first night which (to be fair) was fixed after reporting. No windows in second bedroom. Ordered a half pint of beer in bar during evening and told only served pints! Never heard of that before!
I liked that the receptionist upgraded my break fast as did not get a replacement one for my Sunday stay left in my room.
The continental breakfast for $17 was very average.
Far from the city
Nothing wrong much for he property but for a staff. I was served by a Filipino staff Mary with very good service and went beyond by opting to change our room downstairs because of our luggages. That was a good service. At night before going to our dinner I asked if how much is the room near the reception, another staff (all looks like she is a supervisor)answered my reply but very hesitant to answer me because she said it is expensive for those rooms. It was a very insulting communication which I lost interest to go on further for my dinner. It is now fine for me for the issue this may serve as a training for the staff. All good.
We stayed in an Economy room, and it was very decent considering the price. On the outside the room looks tired, but the interior has been refurbished. Heating was good - air con in the room, heater in the shower and electric blankets. The room sleeps 4, so cheap for a family or group. Has a good restaurant with buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at very reasonable prices. It costs more to eat ala carte at restaurants. The kitchen is fine for light cooking, tea and coffee. Walkable to the Palms shopping centre. Great, inexpensive laundry facilities.
The buses park behind the economy rooms, so it can get noisy early in the morning.
