The room was very clean. Check-in was super easy, and parking was great. The location suited our needs perfectly. The price was affordable. Will definitely stay again.

If it wasnt for the helpful host, we would have left. Desperately needs updating and fixing. Appliances are broken and old eg fridge, toaster. No ice nor cutlery. The tv is small and old and didnt work at first.

Unique? Never saw a staff member during my one night stay. Easy enough to enter the room if you have a mobile phone and had checked messages. Unlike a few guests I helped during my 2pm to 9am stay. I am not complaining, as this will probably be the way of the future. Best of luck Mum.
