Last night we stayed at the Bon Hotel and will rebook for our trip back next week as we now know the ropes for parking etc. We had a bit of trouble finding the hotel parking...

Good hotel with potential, just few tweaks required. See my detailed comments below relating to noisy passageways, towels and noisy bath taps. The place is centrally located and has the potential to attract many customers

There in no alternative food given if you are allergic to certain food. And i was overwhelmed by this attitude or behavior, cause if a hotal is look after their customers their health becomes the priority.

The room was good, close to the mall and to my destination. Great staff who received me very well and check out was easy and very quick. Parking was offered at low fee. The rooms were big enough to accommodate the family. The hand written signed note with chocolate that welcomed me was super great.
