    This place filled our needs beautifully. The unit was clean and tidy and well configured for our family. Bret was a welcoming host who greeted a rather frazzled mum & dad with two car sick lads, with a smile, muffins, and directions to the onsite laundry (fabulous). The muffins were AMAZING! A lovely touch. Would stay here again.

    Free 4 muffins and 1 bottle of 300ml milk upon check in. But these can’t buy my good review. The furniture, appliances, carpet and decor brings you back to the 80s i.e. 30 years ago! Even though they may be clean, but I can’t help but feel that the whole place is “sad”.
