Cleanness is not very good and needs a lot of work done in the bathroom area toilet seat was broken and I had my 4yr daughter that was scared to sit on the seat. It’s disappointing this property staff were friendly but rooms definitely need work and upgrading.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
They tried to put me into a cheaper unit when I paid for the studio with outdoor tub. Got into the unit and the tv didn’t work the taps on the spa tub was stiff and not working properly and the shower only had two settings cold or nothing. Never come back again.

Staff were friendly and room was clean. There was no sky tv which was advertised online. The wifi connection horrible. The room didn't have milk in the fridge. Had to wait couple of hours. The bathroom could use some TLC. The shower head was rusted and corroded needed to be changed.
