This unit was comfy enough, but nothing to rave about.
Close to the river if you want to go for a walk or run
Would need to drive to the shops as it's not close.
Good parking on site.
Hassle free check in.

So, the good thing about this place was the actual room, LOTS of space, a great two-bedroom unit, basic kitchen. The downside was the staff member who checked us in and the booking system. We booked directly with them and 'paid' for our room at booking. When we arrived the guy informed me that we hadn't paid and that it was just to secure the booking - this is despite the booking from them said it was paid. When we challenged this point he was very smug about it all. He enabled us to pay the next day so we could check throughout bank account online to see that it had not actually taken the money, however, this is not good practice to send customers a receipt of payment when they have not actually paid and the attitude of the guy who checked us in was not what I would consider good customer service.

Stayed here two nights on a weekend recently. Was really busy, full i think, with groups of people in different rooms so they’d all gather. All ok on arrival to collect key and milk and we were shown to our room - good customer service. We considered ordering continental breakfast but receptionist was keen on our decision to go to Elm Cafe 2 mins walk away which was great and easy. Not great English so a bit hard to understand. The one bedroom spa room was ok - positive was it had lots of space but downside was it was tried, wasn’t thoroughly cleaned so finger marks on table top, rusty soap holder in shower, taps not thoroughly cleaned, bed was too hard (that’s a personal preference), and it was noisy with people lingering/smoking/talking on seats in front of rooms (1-2am) (however not shouting or aggro) and noisy between the walls with people sneezing, coughing, snoring, talking. Lights were turned off in the car park and walkways so it’s really dark when finding key hole. A good basic place and maybe some good deals. However, not somewhere we will return.
