Good facilities, quiet unit, Sky sport, racing and movie channels, free unlimited Wifi, complementary newspaper. I did find the bath very deep to climb into to have a shower, even with a sturdy hand rail to hold onto.

The unit was clean and well maintained, the toilet/bathroom was new and nice. Enjoyable stay other than a minor point that the unit did not have air-conditioning so it was a little stuffy when we checked in on a warm day. We had to open the windows and doors to ventilate the place but there were occupants smoking outside their units so we had to bare with the smell coming into ours which wasn't very nice as we had little children with us.
