Friendly welcoming and helpful on arrival. We were guided to our studio apartment which was very clean and tidy. Myself and my wife could not fine any faults, this is well worth its price. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

This place looks like it has been recently renovated. It's clean and spacious. The bathrooms also have more space than the average motel room. The double glazed windows make it quiet. The only downside is the Wi-Fi which kept dropping in and out but I...More
