Good choice
Clean room and nice staff. Only problem was with the heat, we were quite chilly especially in the bathroom which had no heat vent, and due to the layout of the suite it didn't get any of the heat from the main room. Decor dated by adequate and clean. We would stay again, maybe not in winter.

Clean & Convenient
Good accomodation & great customer service. The Internet was not working & we found the food at the restaurant a bit expensive for a family of 4.
