We had a self contained unit with bathroom and kitchenette. It was clean, had everything we needed, was close to everything, and everyone was really friendly. The bathroom was tiny and the decor was a little tired but it was clean and the beds were really comfortable. In short, it is fantastic, value for money accommodation
