4/10 Fair

Unfortunately when we checked in to our unit absolutely reeked of curry - very very unpleasant. We constantly had to ask for clean towels. We would have dried them had there been a towel rail large enough to take 2 towels or a heated rail - sadly the only towel rail was about 40 cm long.

Unit was a little dated in bathroom but nice and clean. We rang owner to let them know that we would be late checking in. He put heaters on in our rooms and left lights on which was much appreciated.

Great value for money and good location
I thought it was really great value for money. A nice clean and spacious room with a comfortable bed. The only downside is the bath was too small to fit an adult and fairly old.
