Good 6.0
Friendly staff members, great Wifi
Excellent Wifi - a very pleasant surprise. Food was good, staff were great, very helpful. Problems: The shower needed some improvement. Furniture were not all that new. I was organizing a meeting at the hotel, and several colleagues complained that although they were supposedly given non-smoking rooms, it was obvious that people had been smoking in the rooms.

Usual stay
This is not my first stay here, but the beds have gone a little too difficult to sleep.Also the Taxi service never turned up to pick us up, Their phone which worked on the first day never worked, need to be informed on this.
