i thought the staff could have been a little less serious and more friendly at least with a smile. most of them were rude and ignorant. asking your name ? your name ? etc. the first day when i arrived i was greeted by a man with glasses who was indeed very serious !! like i was after robbing his car or something. ha ha. seriously though the atmosphere there was really quite bad it almost felt like i was in boot camp. at times i felt like what the hell am i doing here im not welcome


Good friendly staff and met some really nice people. Wish location was a little closer to city centre but walk down to the lake, beautiful. Enjoyed my stay
