Please skip this property.
The property was ok however the attitude of the owner was not acceptable. Not recommending this property to anyone and not going back.

Exceptional 10.0
Very warm welcome, and had everything I wanted. I could also see lots of space outside at the back for children to play and run around. When I arrived the host knew I was coming, called me by name and had turned the heater and the electric blanket on as it had turned suddenly cold. He also gave me discount vouchers for the local hot pools.

Exceptional 10.0
Great value. Would stay there again
Good location, great value, mattresses are a bit tired, spacious room. I chose a two bedroom unit with 1 king bed and two twin beds. Only disappointment was that after staying there for three nights, I asked if I could check out an hour later and was declined. Generally hotels are more relaxed with this
