HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017

We stayed at this hotel as we were in town for a funeral. All the staff had so much compassion for us when they found out why we were in town. The rooms were clean. It was nice to have a warm breakfast before our day began. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.

The non-functioning TV and hot tub/pool made our stay memorable in a negative way. Staff and management need training to realize when customers' concerns are valid and do what they can appease their guests. We will be passing the word that it's best to avoid this hotel.

I called to reserve the room and it was less than smooth. They didn't recognize my business name even though we are close by and have people stay there on a semi regular basis.
