Was clean but there had obviously been a flood in the bathroom and the vinyl was very marked and the vanity effected by it. The one heater in the lounge was just about enough to warm the unit up on a winter night. No plug in the kitchen sink. Was OK for one night stay.

Although the units are quite dated everything worked and was spotlessly clean. Staff were pleasant, courteous & obliging. Price was excellent. We would stay there again.

Nothing really. Carpets bit grubby, shower had sharp ends on body wash dispenser, I’m short and it ripped my arm open while washing hair..
