Liked: The location in Downtown, the internet service and the pancake breakfasts were great. We had lots of questions and staff were very patient and helpful, especially Andrew. Only problem was when we were booking online, not all types of accomodation was noted. It was purely by chance that we got the 3 bed ensuite room.
