Aircon didn't work on the first day of my stay; Dinner plates were not always cleared away after use; During my stay there is a day (17/01) where i ordered supper and it was never delivered with no reason for such given. The staff at reception were helpful however the housekeeping and maintenance needs to be improved.

The service was good except that I was very disappointed I booked a family room and a fridge was taken out and the Bin was not in. I requested for a fridge and I never received it. The staff generally were good.
