It was a wonderful place to stay, the unit was perfect and the balcony was a plus. So comfortable! The welcome was excellent and so was the information about amenities and what was walking distance (food choices)

The room was very tidy and clean. We stayed 4 nights and the room was cleaned every day. The manager was very helpful and friendly. The only downside I found is the taps in both bathroom and kitchen are very old with no mixer. But otherwise all was good. The outside could do with a coat of paint because the first impression when we arrived was "oh dear". Overall a good stay. Thank you

Room was a bit shabby needed new paint job and beding needed reviving, but was clean and cosy. My grandaughter liked the blue rooms said it was nice and cheerful. Service was great location was great. Just a walk to beach and cafe. Had all the chanells on sky so we were able to cosy up and enjoy a movie. Good price would stay again.

Dirty nappy and rubbish left in the bin. Bathroom floor wet and sticky. Ran out of toliet paper. Ran out of hot water after 2x three minute showers. Unit was for a family of 5. Oven didn't work. No microwave safe dishes. Bathroom filthy. Floors filthy. Noisy from unit next door. Crockery dirty. Towels/tea towel did not smell clean. PowerPoint in the bathroom did not work. So nowhere in bathroom to use hairdryer. Over all would rather stay in backpackers accommodation.
