    Bathroom floor didn't look clean, although everything else was fine. Location was a bit further out of town than I'd anticpated, but still walked in!

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    modern, inexpensive and clean

    no microwave, would have preferred milk carton,

  • Single
    7.0

    Convenient Price competitive Friendly Car spaces handy to room On one level - save time packing and unpacking

    Shower - no surround - water all over toilet floor when you have a shower Lack of chairs and reasonable table Not bench spaces in bathroom area Tree leafs not cleaned up at entrance

  • Older travelers

    We liked the spa pool and heated swimming pool. We had our 6 year old gandson with us and he particularly enjoyed the pools. The room was well appointed.

    The pillows were too big and hard so we all ended up using the small decorative bed cushions. Parking was a bit hit and miss and if you missed out on a park in the courtyard it was a fair distance to have to carry your bags etc fom the unsealed car park aound the back. Unfortunately there are major roadworks right out front at the moment so we were a bit confused as to where the entrance was.

    The staff were so helpful and made us so welcome we miss the me cure

    Nothing it was a great stay

  • Family with children
    8.0

    Clean and quaint.

    Unfortunately there were roadworks right outside our window, with a water pump going all night and then workmen starting at 6.30-7.00am talking and making a lot of noise.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Friendly service

    The showers were cold, 2 plugs in the room didn't work

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The rooms were big & spacy..not too mention immaculate! We were impressed the moment we walked in as the deco was beautiful..bed was super comfortable! There was a ipod speaker in each room for music which was very convenient & the spa was nice & warm..location was perfect!

  • Family with children
    9.2

    We liked the pool and spa, the spaciousness of the apartment and found the staff friendly and helpful.

  • Couple
    7.8

    We only stayed one night but would have stayed much longer. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. Good value for money! We had a different staff member for check-in and check-out and both were very friendly.

    I would really recommend this hotel for travellers who have their own transport. It's not located in the town centre.

  • Couple
    9.2

    I liked how it was so clean and really nice, The colours in the room were fantastic

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    it was surprisingly nice as we only paid $89 for the room with one double bed and on single bed, what could go wrong with that? value for money, strongly recomment to all my friends.

    it was a little bit noisie, perhaps it was road work right outside. parking was a bit confuse, as we stay in room 37 and it was rainning.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Excellent location for our purpose (a swim meet). The family unit was a good size but needs more kitchen bench space and a dishwasher. An extra chair or two in the lounge wouldn't go astray either. Definitely get a unit on the side away from the road.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Clean room. Comfortable beds. Spacious rooms.

    Offered free WiFi but could not connect due to poor signal.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The hotel was very well situated for both the town and surrounding countryside.
