Nice big room with big TV. We didn’t try the spa bath, but it’s got to be the biggest I’ve seen, more like the size of a big spa pool. Property so close to shops and dining you couldn’t be closer.

Ample space with 3 comfy beds and a sunny balcony. HUGE spa bath. Quiet considering it is on a busy strip. Situated between 3 supermarkets with several fast food joints not much further away. Hassle free check in. Will happily return
