Hi just stayed one night the size and value of the meals is outstanding. Place was clean and tidy but just a bit dated. Rooms could be better signposted. Special mention goes to David the from guest services who drove us to the zoo he was FANTASTIC!! And to Mani in the restaurant and bar outstanding service from both of these guys!

I moved here because of the horrible conditions at the town and country (also drilling into my walls, construction at 630am). What is wrong with this area??? Also,… Read more

I moved here because of the horrible conditions at the town and country (also drilling into my walls, construction at 630am). What is wrong with this area??? Also, desk clerk acted like I was making it up, so I showed her video. She blew me off. Got pissy for my asking for a receipt. Too bad too, I liked the room/hotel. But not even a call to my room to warn me? Nope, just bolt awake with what sounded like bombing and then having to pack while getting a migraine from the constant banging noise? I even let them know I was there, and they ignored me. Can't even wait until check out for storage unit install? Clearly not valuing visitors. Read less
