Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 191 reviews

Very good 8.0
One week end of summer holiday stay
Stayed in single room, which was small, as expected. No air con or fan but climate bearable in late summer with window open, and no flies or mosquitoes! No noise insulation and corridor light filters under door, so bad luck if you're a light sleeper like me, hence my lower rating for comfort! Showers and toilets were kept clean.

Great value
While then accommodation was great the other noisy guests not so great. Had the misfortune to be staying at the same time as a large group of school children who were definitely not the quietest of guests.

Good all round location, handy to CBD, my car parking area. Good hot water & pressure in showers. Housekeeping through out the site was daily & kept clean etc. May go back there again soon.
