Nice welcome on our arrival, check in was easy. Location was great. Supermarket close by. Bill Richardson Transport Museum was just up the road. Bed was very comfy. No traffic noise which is always a bonus. Lovely and clean, would definitely recommend a stay here.

Lovely stay for two nights in an accessible ground floor unit. The unit was quiet, bed was comfortable and parking outside the unit was handy. The lounge area had good sized couches and the kitchen was set up with everything needed for us to cook. The unit was very clean. Countdown was within walking distance so we made our own meals.
