I stayed in two units they were spotless. A few minutes walk to the town centre and there’s some beautiful walks along the river

Close to city centre, busy area. A bit dated but clean and tidy.

I booked this via Wotif. I booked what I thought was one unit with two rooms as there were three single people in our party and we needed two separate bedrooms. One fee was charged which made me feel confident that we had one family unit with two bedrooms. what we got was two units - not even in the same block!! this ruined our family reunion (a rare event for us). we were told "that's what happens when you book on-line". totally annoyed!! I booked this in one name in one transaction.could they not have had the brains to book us with connecting units??
