It was not the most pleasant stay & wouldn't choose this hotel going forward. The staff was not the friendliest & didn't make the stay very comfortable. There were a few small issues/events which led up to my over all grading of the hotel

Pictures on the website are deliberately misleading!! In reality the Hotel looks terrible and it blends in perfectly with its shady surroundings. Thank heavens I was not with my wife & kids. Never Ever Again!!
