10/10 Exceptional

My flight got delayed a few hours so I just needed somewhere to rest. This location was perfect as it was close to the airport. Elizabeth who was at reception was very friendly and got me a room very quickly. The wifi wasn’t working so she allowed me to use her hotspot to track my flight. I was very appreciative of that sweet fester. I only stayed about 6 hours. The room was clean with a decent shower and a balcony overlooking the village. The roads to the property however is terrible. This is a perfect layover spot. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Infrastructure is okey, including good TV reception, AC, wifi but they need to maintain the shower facilities and provide cleaner linen & towels. Staff were extra hospitable and kind at reception desk and dining. However they need to raise their bar on breakfast varieties to include fresh fruits and juices, pancakes, cereals etc and timeliness in serving and preparation that goes with it.

2/10 Poor

Worse place ever
Well what can I say, i would not rate this hotel more than half a star. I apprecaite its mainly used for 1 night stays being an airport hotel however not having hot water, linen being dirty, finding cockroaches in bathroom and being charged higher prices than those listed on the restaurant menu is really not acceptable. Yes it is cheap however so are alot of other hotels in the area. Dont stay here!!

Airport pick was pre arranged but 45 mins late. Hotel is close to airport and was used for an extended layover rather than staying in the airport. Staff is friendly and hotel is very basic.
