This place has been around forever, but this is the first time we have stayed here. Room was large and well laid out with a separate little kitchenette room at the back next to the ensuite bathroom. Room was clean and fittings and bed linen etc seemed very new which was nice. Whoever had cleaned the shower had left a...

Ground floor 2 bedroom apartment serviced everyday. Great location. Friendly staff. Very homely apartment to come back to after a day of being a tourist. Nice hot shower every day. Plenty of parking, guest laundry and opening windows for fresh air or A/C if it gets a little bit warm.

Room was clean & close to Tamar River and Cataract Gorge. The ladies at the reception were very friendly and wifi was free! But the walls were thin and I could hear everything from the neighbours... The kitchen needs to be fixed - it's very old and the cupboard door was broken. Also the shower did not have a door!...

The outside is nothing to look at, but inside, WOW!! Very large room, large modern bathroom, and well appointed kitchen. We had a double bed and a twin bed and still had plenty of space. Large flat screen TV and free wifi. Very clean throughout. Because of the complete kitchen we were able to cook and eat all of our...

The room was very big with a double and a single bed and nice big tv. There was also a table and four chairs. The kitchen had everything but was in need of upgrade, had obviously had some water damage at some time. The bathroom was the same, nice bath etc but needs upgrade. Lovely views from the balcony but...

Booked my stay on stayz and the owner sent me a text message to confirm the booking. She again texted me just prior to the visit to welcome us and confirm the room number. It was such a nice gesture. The location is easy to find and there is ample parking. The owner was nice and warmly welcomed us when...

It is a Valuable apartment nect to Tamar river. We stayed at the upper floor for one night. You can unload your luggage in the carpark which located at the higher level. There is a Park opposite the Villas where we had a jogging in the evening. Although it is quite near the road, the sound proof is very good....

It is a really clean, spacious & great hotel in front of the river. You can find all kitchen utensils to prepare your breakfast or dinner if you do not want to eat outside. It is well prepared and looked after one with a great price. It takes only 7-8 min from cbd to drive. The room definately looks like...

Stayed with my sisters and niece for two nights. The room was nice and clean, if a bit dated. No heating, but it was warm inside anyway. Very noisy on the main road and difficult to sleep. I probably wouldn't recommend it for older couples, but it's ok for families.

Thanks for your review of our property. All our rooms have new reverse cycle heating units on the wall of the lounge area, maybe you missed seeing these, its a pity you didnt call down to reception and we would have been able to direct you. Our property does back onto a road but most of the traffic does seem...
