Extremely clean and well presented with up to date furnishings. Bed comfortable. Great location. Managers helpful. Parking at times was lean. Busy road but expected this as it is a main highway. Would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Julia. Glad you had a great stay. While parking may appear lean at times, we do have sufficient parking for one vehicle per unit. Occasionally, we have issues due to unauthorised vehicles parked on the property, but we monitor the car-park and have unauthorised vehicles removed ASAP when we know about them. Thanks for recommending us. Pete & Morag
