          We stayed two nights in a studio unit which was drab and poorly furnished with two of the four chairs revealing the inner stuffing. The whole place badly needed renovation. The kitchen utensils were very basic and inadequate. The location was convenient and an excellent...More

          Really a pretty basic place, but had good parking and in a good location. Kitchen and bathroom was dated and basic. Really needs a reno. Located on the main road into town. Close to shops and services.

          Very basic room- looked a bit like a prison. However very spacious and we actually slept well. Fine location- restaurants only a 15minute walk away. Whilst the decor and facilities were aged, it did provide everything we needed.
