  • The lighting throughout was really bad. The kitchen was inadequately stocked. For the included breakfast there was one close to empty box of Post Toasties and only a tiny bit of milk, not enough for two people to eat cereal. There was no soap to take a shower, but we were told to go through what others had left for a used bar. No one seemed around much to answer any questions.

  • The Swiss guy was friendly but the other staff was really unfriendly when I was there. And that affected the atmosphere.The location was a bit outside of the center. Pretty safe area and near to some cheep places to eat. The unfriendly staff affected the atmosphere to much so I wouldent go back.
