I can not fault this property. The owners could not do enough for me. The bed was very comfortable. Room size was very good as was the layout. Parking was very good right outside my door. No noise in unit even though you are on a very busy street. Plenty of milk for your cuppa A . Will always stay there when passing through. Thank you for a wonderful night.
