No towels etc in bathroom. Extra stuff left in there that shouldn't be there. Two small dead maggots on the bathroom floor when we arrived. Told that they had just done a spring clean. We stayed 2 days days. They cleaned unit after one day. Maggots still there when we left. Killed 3 spiders in the unit of the first day. No bread and butter plates in the cupboard. One coffee cup cracked and leaked coffee. Went to office to get another one which was also dirty. Iron had wires showing through the cord. Place was old and dated

The covered walkway to the laundry area was great when we had persistently wet day. The staggered height of each section of units provided an element of privacy even though there were many units in the complex. The proximity to Aotea Lagoon was perfect for the playground and walks with our granddaughter.

Handy to motorway & a good size. But.. we are a non smoking family & the room completely stunk like stale cigarette smoke. That’s a big turn off for us. Staff were really lovely. The property is tired. But maintained well. The towels & bed linen were lovely & clean.

Overall our stay was great. It's nice and close to Porirua shops. The room was nice and big. TV reception wasn't great, had sky tv but very fuzzy reception. It's in a great location with being next to the police college (the reason for my trip) I will stay here again :)
