8/10 Very good

Nice modern feel, liked the deck although it never seemed to get any sun. Good bathroom, although no power outlets for hair drier. Also found it difficult having to wash plates, cups etc in the bathroom sink. Location was good, being so close to a good cafe and the lakeside walkway.
