3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
quiet and spacious. Becoming rundown and rough around the edges. The block our unit was in appeared to be inhabited by welfare recipients including very young children. We would have appreciated being accommodated in another part of the complex.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Very helpful owners. Spacious unit. Shower water pressure good, but shower rose was a bit low for a 6ft tall person. Quiet location, looked like a good kids play area and plenty of room for kids to run around. Free use of washing machine was appreciated.
