Stayed for 3 nights. Room was spacious and clean. Caretaker was friendly and helpful. Room rate was very reasonable. Town centre only a short drive away. Kept awake most nights by what sounded like rats in the ceiling. I think they need to call the pest exterminator in? Free wiFi was a bonus.

This accommodation was excellent. The owner was most helpful. The place was clean with a full kitchen etc. Shopping centers are close. Excellent places of interest were quite close. The room was quiet with air conditioning in each room including a ceasing fan. Great place to spend a few days.

Apartments probably not as flash as the ones the other side of the Todd River, but if you want self catering this is the way to go. Large, clean fresh apartment with more of a kitchen rather than a kitchenette. Friendly staff with great recommendations for our stay.

The bloke at the desk was very friendly and informative. The room was clean and spacious with a great kitchenette (more like a kitchen). Beds are comfy and bathroom is clean and have everything you need. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable stay that's value for money then this is it 😃

This apartment complex was clean, tidy & neat. The apartment was well equipped. Natasha, on check in, walked us to our room & gave us instructions for the TV and air conditioning. This was most unusual, but VERY welcome. Usually written instructions make no sense to me. We were able to get a late check out with no charge and...
