The price is cheap but then again there are other places in the same price bracket that are cleaner and less noisy. Hair in fridge White tail spider on bed Blood on bedspread People in other units laughing and talking loudly at 3.20 am. Stained carpets with blue fluff all over from previous occupants. Restaurant is good and meals very nice.

Good faciltities in the room, well laid out and roomy. Good laundry and dryer room. Meal at the restaurant was good - roast though went for smaller size. Some keto options would have been good. Option to go for an evening walk nearby. Helpful staff
