Facilities and utilities are new-ish (only microwave and air conditioner were old but working perfectly) and cleanness was excellent. It’s a quiet part of the town, with a few dining options too. The view was superb with a big BBQ area and nice outdoor areas.

Great location and beautiful view from balcony . Room clean and comfortable. Maybe as a suggestion have a better partition between the balconies as we had people staying next door who were quite noisy.

The view was superb. Sun-loungers in the garden overlooking the river was a great way to relax. We found the staff member very rude and abrasive which meant we avoided unpleasant interactions with her. So didn’t order breakfast, new towels, we didn’t know where the pool was... We were surprised the room had only 1 toilet roll and 2 coffee pods for a 5 night stay, given it cost $300 per night. We wouldn’t stay again. We wouldn’t particularly recommend it either unless at a bargain price.
