          It is simple & relax.

          I couln't believe a bird feather (dark colour) was found on my bed, I would understand if you said the pillow was made with it, somehow it doesn't seems right.

          Parking spaces too small, Beds too small, Bathrooms way too small particularly the dressing and bathroom vanity area which is absolutely rediculous, The TV not set to the correct aspect ratio and could not be changed.

          Bedroom was comfortable with two double beds, good shower and bathroom. Breakfast was so beautiful. Plenty of food, juices, desserts, etc.

          We stayed for two nights and everything was very nice. Anything was wrong.

          Close proximity to CBD. Friendly staff.

          Staff did not have Booked.net information. Had to produce copy of reservation to prove breakfast already paid for.

          I had a few minor problems with my room but the staff corrected all faults in a timely maner

          The meal I had in the restaurant on Saturday night was ordinary and the place seemed to be a bit understaffed.
