Unfortunately the cleanliness of the rooms was disappointing. Cobwebs around the ceilings, skirting boards & walls were marked & dirty, and cushions were stained. Curtains were not hung properly, but thankfully the bathroom & kitchen facilities were tidy. Just not upto the standard we were used too.

Clean tidy quieter location than Riccarton Rd.
5 min walk to Westfield Riccarton, and was quieter than on Riccarton Rd. Clean and tidy, spacious. Just no stove or stove top to cook, just microwave, kettle, fridge. Would stay again
