Easy check-in & comfy bed but needs a bit of TLC. Shower knobs were broken & hot water was very slow and not hot, I showered without any cold water on at all. The toilet seat was not on properly either and would twist when sitting down. Overall it was pleasant and would stay again if the above was fixed.

The pool was nice, although quite shallow, and the proximity to where we were going was very good. The water pressure was atrocious and having a big step into the shower was a bit dodgy

This was a great property, the room we were in was an excellent size, it was far enough from the road to make it very quiet which was great, it's also very close to one of the major shopping centres.
