Checkin was seamless and room catered well for our stay. Only downside was the lack of air conditioning - room was extremely warm including bathroom. Fan available helped somewhat. Other than this, we couldn’t fault the place and was grateful that it was pet friendly. We wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thank you

Unfortunately they must have forgotten about us as the room wasn’t serviced at all during our working week stay! Would have been good to have clean, dry towels and our coffee etc replenished daily.

I liked my decision to stay was last minute yet accepted no worries and reception was great due to crap day. Loved the location across the road from bakery dairy and fish n chip shop soooo handy. My room was a bit small but immaculate.
