Excellent amenities.. just one thing. Would be nice to have a chair in the double room. They're big enough....just disappointed that guests don't respect the place and do their dishes or clean up properly after themselves etc..we will be back though for sure.

Great for people without children.
We booked via Expedia however we were booked into a room that was not safe for our baby the staff at the accommodation were amazing and sorted much faster then the 5 hour wait on the phone for Expedia.
