Units were clean and comfortable and it looked like new carpet in the lounge which was great, however areas are quite dated and old, some areas need a makeover.

The property was older and a little tired but for the price was good value as could cook my own meals, do washing etc. Great location when you have no car and bussiness to attend to in town or as a tourist as close to the tourist spots easy walking distance to view the famous penguins. Close to supermarket. All in all a good stay for a sad occasion a death in the family.
