The 2 bedroom self catering unit was spacious and had everything we needed. The problem is it needs money spent on it. For not a lot of money it could be great. Coat of paint, basic kitchen & bathroom update and modern furniture it could be really good. Self catering laundry was handy and location good. I would stay again but please clean it up.

Stayed 8 nights because of a family bereavement, missing safety catch to bathroom window, they replaced with wrong catch, curtains fell off rod at sliding door, mouldy skirting board to bathroom, water pooled around toilet floor, living room couch-you sit on it & sink below the frame! Microwave ancient & grime trapped in glass, rings on stove top don' t operate when first turned on, secret to that was turn on, off, on, oven unclean, sticky kitchen floor, electric jug grotty, had to push in plug @ jug to make it heat. We rented 2 other units for our family, an electric jug was filled from the top & water poured out the base, hole in wall near electric plug was meant to be repaired, it wasn't, fuse blew more than once, outside units water pooled over the door mats after it rained.
Managers were obliging but the owner needs a massive wake up call and need to spend money on total renovations. Don't stay here!

Room Tip: Go anywhere else

Very uncomfortable, dirty dishes, for a room that was cleaned that morning there was a lot of dust and a sign saying that if dishes aren't washed you will be charged $25. Empty alcohol cans in car park. Rude hosts very nasty and threatening. There was grass in the single bed under the top sheet
Beds pulled away from the wall and found tampon wrapping under beds and hall way cupboards had black dust on the shelf. Toilet seat had plastic coating peeling off and looked disgusting.

Room Tip: Don't stay there
