|Manager was informative, friendly and professional.
No power points to recharge any electronic equipment. No internet. No lights in the outside toilets. The outside sensor lights for the toilets were not working.
The entertainment by the fellow guests went until after 1.30am. Not appreciated when driving that day for 8 hours with only 5 hours sleep.
Accommodation was not available during the hours of 10am to 5pm - so it was not convenient if I wanted to rest during the day.|
