    Intercom to access parking was out of order, one call and the gate was opened. Parking area seemed secure. There was not enough parking so other patrons parked me in, luckily I did not have to leave leave in an emergency. The receptionist was friendly. check-in was seamless. I liked the old fashion key rather than the access card entry so there were no access issues. Room was clean, aircon worked well. When I arrived the door was left open so there were many mosquitoes inside. A call to reception and the room was sprayed, sorting out the mosquito issue. The iron arrived promptly after requesting it and it was in good condition. If you are a lite sleeper, this place is not for you. There was loud music and noise from the pub nearby, when the pub closed, the party continued on the street. Check out was seamless. This place offers good value for money, the only reasons I would not use it again is the amount of noise at night (this was a Wednesday night) as well as the fact that I got parked in, and I would have had an issue if I needed to leave in an emergency.

    Dear James, Thank you for your constructive feedback. We know we have a problem with the noise in Florida Road and are working on it with the businesses in the area. We do our best to accommodate people who are light sleepers by keeping them as far away from the madness of the road. We are refurbishing the rooms but can only do a few at a time. Thank you for staying with us. Kind regards Lindsay
