close to town. Quiet. The room had a spray in it which left an awful odour that we couldn't get rid of.

I have stayed at the Rolleston several times, the newer units are very comfortable and more modern. The older units are suitable but could do with some love in the bathrooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful and its very quiet with minimal noise of traffic from the main road.

The unit is well located. Very disappointing, as what we got, was not what was shown on website. The unit interior, carpets, fittings, appliances are all out dated and drag the the place down. Bedding was good. Hot and cold water excellent.
