8/10 Very Good

It was my 2nd stay (1st stay was with my lil family, with my 2 kids :) at last year and 2nd stay was short night over there only 1 night its 3 days ago :). Just have a little technical issue about the room card access. When was got the card from receptionist its can't get in the room, then went back to receptionist said it didn't work, and receptionist re-input again my room access card and then its the same problem, it's didn't work again then i went back again to receptionist for 3rd time lol and at the end i wanted that the receptionist staff come with me to the room and Voila its open :) But overall is ok 👌

As others say; great location, good value, airy, with most things you need. Despite being a "festival" weekend, there was no real noise problem. I will return (have been before in old YMCA days)
