    First room they gave us smelt of curry, horrible!! floors were absolutely filthy. They gave us another room, that has obviously not been vacuumed or cleaned, chip crumbs all over the carpet. Benches still filthy, just disgusting! Bathroom smelt of mould it was yuck!

    My apologies that you did not enjoy your stay with us. It is disappointing that when we moved you into the 2 other rooms they were not up to our usual standard. The comments have been passed onto our housekeeping manager.

    This was our second stay at The Observatory. Wonderful location opposite Town Beach. Beautiful ocean views. Easy walk into town or along the coastal path. Excellent apartment and the pool was good, too. We'll be back!
