4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were warmly greeted and shown to our unit. The units were very clean & comfortable with a lovely garden area out the back. The kitchen & bathroom decor was a bit dated and the curtains needed to be hung properly. However, the price was very reasonable for the handy location.
