Spent a whole week here in a two bedroom apartment and found that it had everything we needed. Fully equipped kitchen, laundry in room. The pool area is adequate without being fancy. The location is central but not too busy. Very handy to Woolworths. The receptionist is so helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
