Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We ended up leaving. It stunk there was moldy food in top of oven. No smoke alarms. We were actually disgusted. Windows were dirty. We didnt want to make a scene so said we had to leave for family matters. Would not recommend this place infact no smoke alarms is a major health and safety breech. Never be back.
