    the hotel lived up to its expectation on royalty

    i didn't like the parking process where we would have to go to reception for room activation and then to the parking office before exiting the building, it was just too much admin. Also, the noise from the generator was just uncomfortable - because you come to the hotels to rest and for peace of mind but the noise from the generator defeated the entire purpose. The breakfast on Sunday was just aweful.

    It felt like a family-owned or run establishment. Good value for money .b

    not mad about location and dated decor:) But would recommend to others.
