Some very “tricky” photography used to present rooms. If you’re keen on dust over everything and a shower head at 1.7m height. This is your joint.

Roomy enough with bench space. Adequate lighting. No carpet which is good, new looking tiles. Wi-fi worked. Comfortable bed and pillows. The fridge worked well enough to freeze the Esky bottles. No shampoo though.

The room was very dated but I found it clean & the bed was comfortable. The pool area was neglected, the pool was dirty & I wouldn’t use it for fear of getting sick.

4/10 Fair

The property had the most unkept appearance inside and out. Stained filthy carpet and drapes. Nothing pleasant about it except walking distance to food outlets
