Tips for establishment”

The place is kept clean. Some staff are actually helpful and professional. The establishment is well maintained. The establishment is also close to shops and easy access to the roads and highways.
Some Staff members can be a bit rude when talking especially if certain rules aren&#39;t understood, they actually will argue with the paying customer. Also you don&#39;t have standard coffee and tea in the kitchen. Laundry is also charged extra and is not part of the bill, so it works out to be expensive, especially if a customer is on a budget.
