We were looking for a clean, tidy and comfortable room close to the esplanade. We found the property met our requirements and was larger than we thought. The bathroom and shower were very good. The lady that serviced the room was lovely and helpful also.

Great location…walkable to all in Cains. OK utilitarian room. Room was clean and comfortable but over a noisy car rental…hard to sleep late if you want to.

Very good
Almost everything to recommend about staying here. Very clean and spacious rooms. Quiet and easily accessible. My feedback is to have the number of towels and extra blankets for each guest. A hand towel would have been appreciated and used. Booked 2 rooms. One had AC you could only turn down to 21 degrees but the other room could be set cooler for sleeping. Extra keys are needed when you are a family of adults coming in and out at different times. Great location and responsive hosts. Great value all over.

Convenient for an overnight stay
Room was basic but had all amenities needed for an overnight stay. Shower stall leaked all over the floor which wasn't good as it did not drain away, even overnight.
