Our room was very dated, there was mould in bathroom and the shower pressure was ridiculous for the small size of it, too powerful i couldnt wash my little one in there. The carpet was that old and dirty i wouldnt let my infant crawl on it. The couch had food marks on it and the wallpaper was lifting. The room needs a complete revamp and deep clean. Also there was a muck up with the room we ordered and had prepaid. They tried to give us a smaller room where the bedding configuration didnt suit, i questioned and the host eventually found a similar room. We did find him pleasant during our stay.

The loud foul language, noisy vehicles in and out during night. The carpets and rooms are very worn and dated.

The room was old and outdated and the bathroom was filthy. You could see the mould and scum build up on the shower.

Our unit was very warm and bathed in sun. When we went to reception your friendly staff mademade booking in very effortless. The grandson especially liked the offer of free Wi -Fi. When we needed to extend our checkout time by a couple of hours this to was worked out effortlessly as well.
