Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Amenities
It was a Three bedroom semi detached house, so there was plenty of room for my family of 5. However we were greeted with some garbage bags sitting just outside the front door and some of the linen could have been cleaner. My main complain would be about check in / check out process - beware, there's no office @ the main property and the address can be misleading - our unit was located elsewhere. To check in one needs to contact the property in advance to receive their check in instructions. This information was somewhere as a small print so naturally I missed it. Upon the arrival and wondering around the apartment building asking people about the office I finally realized what the process was. Furthermore, the main office contact number was not responding so I had to call the emergency number to finally receive the correct address / check in instructions. Upon the checkout, we were greeted by the cleaning lady knocking at the door @ 9.40 am informing us that the new guest asked for an early check in at the properties needed to be cleaned (notice that the actual check out time was 10.00). I probably would not recommend the place, sorry.

Serviceable property, clean enough. No hot water to kitchen tap. No kitchen bin (bin bag was provided). No dishwashing liquid. Good enough for one night. Probably won’t stay again.
