Stayed here for a few days whilst working in the area. Booked through my company. And to be honest the best ive stayed in around this area. Had a Gym opposite my room and laundry, small seating outside every unit. A real comfy bed and self contained kitchen area, nice size bathroom all modern and good pressure in the shower/...

Used to stay here on a fortnightly basis until I had my third no hot water experience. However the owners are lovely and very hospitable. The Beds are the best. However the Rooms are small for the price. Busy road leaves you with traffic noises most of the night. 3/5

Thank you for your review Jay. Its a pity you had to leave your review until 10 months down the track as in March we put in a complete new hot water system and have had absolutely no problems since. We would welcome you to come back and stay for a lovely hot shower. Cheers Fi

Here on business and the studio unit was perfect and although just off the main road very quiet. Clean and tidy and great to be able to park directly outside. A nice touch with dual control electric blankets and free WiFi. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and I would not hesitate to rebook.
