I would have no hesitation recommending this establishment to others. As a business traveller breakfast could be earlier during the week, say from 07.00 hrs. Location and security were also perfect for my needs.

Hi Sean. Thanks for the lovely review. Next time you visit, please let management know the night before, that you would like an early breakfast. We certainly arrange early breakfasts for those that require them. It may not be bacon and eggs at 06h30, but it will be something nourishing. All the best Jeff More
