Very rundown could do with a big makeover, but the room was ok but rundown too. From lights not working to broken power points to sliding glass doors that cant lock and fridge that wont freeze, glad the security screen door locked in this area. After hours we locked ourselfs in for all the yelling and fighting going on around and in this complex. It only stopped when it started to rain at 2am and cars in the complex no number plates and parts falling off should be towed away. Wont be back its a real dive and a half way house that's why its cheap

Travelling for work - accommodation very poor, intoxicated persons sitting on driveway of the complex. Facilities and security inadequate, no working iron, acoustics very poor (able to hear conversations and noise from adjourning units). Rooms very dated and small. Only thing clean was the bed sheets! Unable to stay and needed to source further accommodation at extra cost to my employer.

Was noisy, there was a hole in the wall as what looked like someone had put their boot through it. No extra bedding, eg blanket only a sheet on bed. Main curtain was all damaged. Reception was friendly but not helpful.
