Nice Stay but some room for Improvement
Large very comfortable bed and quiet unit at the back of property which was really close to the mall. Nice easy check in, quality bathroom products and very clean bathroom. Unfortunately stay was let down by thin old towels (only 2 towels provided in a spa 1 bed unit) and couch that was sunk at one end so two people could not sit on (should have been replaced years ago looking at the age/style). Nice touch that they left water for people to defrost their cars in the morning. Would stay again if the couch and towels were addressed, everything else was fine including nice plunger coffee :)

Fair 4.0
Poor
Was not happy with the room, was very cold and when heat pump was running it was very noisy so not much sleep. The room was not serviced, paint peeling from the ceiling and walls, overall was not happy so moved to the Best Western up the road.

It was comfortable enough. Bathroom could of done with a really good clean. There were some dodgy, curly hairs around the place and they weren't ours... Other than that all good. The owner rang as we were arriving late and they were off to do pickups from the airport so he rang to let us know we could just go straight into our room without checking in.
