Pay a little extra

The exterior looked nice, but the bones weren't worth it! Bad bed, loud heat/cool system; thin walls and no cold water from the tap. Lukewarm drinking water is more irritating than you might initial... more

Please accept our apologies on these issues - did you report any to front desk? Beds - these are recently supplied by national approved vendor. We have mattress pads with triple sheeting and a blanket Air conditioner - appears to be normal working noise. Walls - we have solid concrete walls all round the room including the ceiling. Cold water - maybe you did not turn the knob to right fully. We have checked the supply and is working as normal Perhaps in future you may wish to call any of staff on duty to get issues resolved on the spot to maximize your satisfaction.
