Something unusual

I booked 2 rooms together in one booking, but our rooms are not place next to each other. Hence, I have to request for our rooms to be closer together. However, My mum felt uncomfortable in one of your room 6025, it felt like there's someone watching over her at midnight. Thus we have requested room changed again. Your staff was kind to handle this situation.

Good value for money

Was good value for money. Room was small but functionable. It was clean and beds comfortable. Bathroom ensuite was modern fresh and clean and shower was lovely and hot. Parking is cheap. Only grumble was I didn't like the pillows but for the cheap price it's fine. Have stayed in both the ridges section and the sleep and go and recommend them.
