    Location was perfect for what i needed to do. Nothing fancy. Clean but amenities very basic. Budget standard kitchen utensils. I didn't cook and was on my own so was fine. If you expect clean and basic that is what you will get. I would stay again - I know what i'm getting.

    The fact that the entrance was on a side street making it easier to get in and out, than if it was onto busy Riccarton Rd.
