3/5 Okay

When we first arrived and went inside the cabin there was a really bad smell in the linen cupboard. Upon searching for wha the smell was we discovered it was a dirty wet foam floor mop..We immediiately put the mop outside. Also the cabin was very small for the four of us as we were always manouvering around each other..Would have been good if we were given a bigger cabin like the one we had in our previous stay there..

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
The property was good that it was close to Ballina town centre and was convenient. The front door however did not work the entire time we were staying there and so our belongings could have been taken. Also there was no parking for the other adults staying in the cabin, not even in the guests area. Check in was terrible - in that we had a one hour block between 200pm and 3:00pm to check in and make payment.
