The price is cheap, but facilities are okay. The sound of machine next to my room then I can sleep at night and it was really difficult. Lounge and separate the living room is good.

We had a clean spacious quiet double room. The bed had electric blankets and there was a good heater as well. It wasn't cold so. The communal kitchen was well equipped and clean. The location wad great for us to walk to the centre of town and to the famous Rewa Rewa bridge.

The general feel was that this would be a good place to make an extended stay. 4 out of 5 just because you must leave... More
