2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Really Dirty! broken doors (got locked in toilet twice), broken blinds with no curtains so light flows on through, extremely hot, no aircon is fine but put in a fan or even window stays as we couldnt open a window to try cool down. Could say alot more about our room but wont. The room next door appeared alot cleaner so perhaps its being renovated. Wouldnt stay again.

1/5 Terrible

We had a family emergency and had to head home owners still took all our money and given the circumstances this was very unreasonable. We are a hard working family and have lost $420. We are so so disappointed
