Serviceable former motel
Decent location, serviceable room with a glorious shower (great pressure, hot hot water straight away). A warm nook on a cold night.

Great value and location

Excellent accommodation but slightly expensive
The place is close to the main city and the apartment has all facilities such as full cooking and washing facilities.If you are family travelling with kids, it meets all your requirements. Coming to cons, it is slightly expensive.

Hot water
The hot water took quite a long time to warm up when we first arrived in the evening. We had to run the hot water for quite a long while before it was warm, hence a lot of wasted water. It would be more water efficient if the hot water can be warmed up faster.
