This place is old. You have to share a bathroom. The beds are terrible bad for your back and the bedding is old and worn. The staff tries but not even all the lights are working and the bathrooms makes noises. Even the couch is dirty.

The self catering unit we booked was just fine. Not great value for money though. Check in was a disaster as they lost the booking, luckily the unit was still available. Also no breakfast included in the price.

We stayed in a private room with its own bathroom, so it was pretty much just like being in a hotel. The "honesty bar" was a nice feature. You just take what you need from the fridge and check it off on a list and you pay up on your way out. Secure parking, pool, and relaxing common areas.
