          The room and bathroom was still okay, but there is no free wifi which not convenient for those foreign travelers! The room are quite small, which we had not much space to put our medium size luggages.

          Comfortable, bed good. Close the motorway so some road noise, not a big issue if you are a sound sleeper like myself. Parking on the street limited but car park close by. Reasonably priced Asian cafe on the ground floor. Would stay again.
