Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We stayed in a queen studio which was quite basic and ok in terms of size as we were out for most days. The rooms are joined by a corridor at the back and at times we could hear talking in the adjacent units. Off the road though, so traffic noise is not an issue. Nice and clean.

      Property was ok. We only needed a place to sleep and for that it was nothing spectacular. Was not happy to be told our room didn’t have a car park for it and we had to park out the back in the dirt, wasn’t happy with that.

      Good parking for cars with trailers. The rooms are dated and house keeping is not the best. Only 1 thin pollow each.
