4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service

The unit we were in appeared a little older condition. No extractor vent in bathroom meant very steamy after a shower and as we were in ground floor to front of the unit I didn’t want window open until after I had finished. Shower very tiny, great water force but it was directly in my face as I couldn’t adjust shower nozzle. Shower curtain meant water went everywhere on the floor and the whole unit had a damp musty smell which came directly from the bathroom ventilation issue I would imagine. $ wise I did get my money’s worth as other more expensive rooms were clearly better quality. I would stay there again but would opt more a better room next time. For a one night stay in our unit it was bearable

      Awesome stay

      Fantastic stay thanks: the spa bath, spacious room, well-laid out kitchen, towels and clean living space was very welcoming. Road noise was non-existant
