3/5

The room we had was very small for three beds squeezed in and another friend, had a larger corner room with only two beds in but heaps more room. There were no mattress protectors on the beds!! Very unhygienic. Three people in a room, 2 cups, 2 glasses!! Disappointing that when we booked we asked that our group be in the same floor and we were spread out on all different floors... after being told we just had to ask in the comments. The location was great, car parking ok, but a bit of a squeeze.
