6/10 Good

This property is old and in need of repair. The title 'resort' is misleading. Shower leaked water to carpet, bed light wasn't working, conditioner dispenser wasn't working. While cheap overall, was expensive for such poor quality.

8/10 Very good

The property was clean, but the bathroom and shower are well overdue for an update. Tea and coffee faculties are also very old - but thankfully they were clean.
