More a motel than a hotel

Was disappointed with the hotel. I chose this hotel based on some reviews by guests who had stayed in this hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel did not turn up as I have expected. First of all, the condition of the hotel is a old and run-down. I have no complaint about its cleanliness though but feel that it should be classified as a motel more than hotel. The staff are not as friendly as what some reviews had mentioned. Most importantly, I am unsatisfied that there is no free wifi available for the guests. At this time and age, this is a deterring factor!!!

Cheap and cheerful for families

Comfortable beds, convenient kitchenette (a lot better equipped than others I have seen with a full sized fridge and oven). A nice pool and hot tub in a garden courtyard - unfortunately the hot tub is about to be closed because it can't be adapted to meet disability standards. The pool is an appropriate size for the small complex and is also open later than other hotels (until 10pm# Staff were friendly and being able to use the communal bbq was great too. There is no restaurant or bar but there are plenty of these in the surrounding streets, and a small #not cheap) supermarket a few blocks away. Bathroom is small and the vanity cabinet in ours was showing some signs of wear but otherwise great. There are no lifts so if you are on the 2nd or 3rd floor expect to climb stairs. In room internet is available with a modem, wi-fi is only in communal areas and there are various costs so not so convenient for tablet only travellers unless you BYO Wi-Fi hotspot or router.
