Interiors reflect the colour-charged, mix-it-up look of a lifestyle brand that loves to jumble patterns and textures and remind guests that 'Mama Loves You'.

THE FACILITIES

The young staff are friendly but service can be casual. There is a well-kept laundry room on the first floor and essential items along with children's toys, sex aids and Mama Shelter-branded clothes and accessories are on sale beside the reception. Conveniently, check out is not until 12 noon.
