Astral was a great stay in a good area and easy to find. Very nice staff who made us most welcome and showed us to our unit. Second was not possible but good news in the morning with a cancelation. Would recommend here.

We had family unit 5. Whilst the location is good and the unit is spacious, we were missing some essentials that made our stay uncomfortable: after arriving from a long day, all we wanted was hanging out, getting warm etc. We couldn't work out the Heatpump and no instructions anywhere. Went to reception at 8pm, had a closed sign but after knocking confirmed how it works. Couldn't get TV and sky connecting at all, again, for lack of instructions! Tried to call as motel folder said 10pm for reception but nobody picked up after lots of tries. One power plug in the room! So you had to decide if you wanted to work either of the electric blankets or charge one device... surely a multiplug can be spared? No bedside lights and small wall light not working. One electric blanket didn't even reach power outlet! Worst thing and outright dangerous: in the very outdated bathroom, don't touch the showerhead, it gives you a serious electric shock! All of us got one and mine was quite severe. Anybody with a pacemaker might have issues. Even the shower adjuster is live! Hope they get this fixed. Carpet in bedroom looks super filthy. All in all not a great stay and some things could easily be fixed.

For a 3.5 star accommodation this place provides excellent value. Lots of facilities in each unit, very well cleaned and prepared each day. Veery comfortable double bed, shower has lots of water pressure. Easy to find location, fairly quiet – a lot to like here

Sliding door to Family room needs fixing-very hard to close and lock. Terrible WIFI-very hard to connect and drops out. But rooms spotlessly clean, if a little shabby. Bathroom could do with an upgrade.
