Very helpful staff - at times I did have some issues in my room (toilet running when I arrived, light bulb in a lamp blew while I was there etc) and the staff always made sure the issue was attended to straight away. I stayed for two whole months and did not hate it by the end, so that is saying something! The little balcony was very pleasant to sit on in the evenings, my shower had a good level of water pressure and did not go cold, and my bed was extremely comfy. Very hand to have own fridge and cooking facilities, although I did buy some extra kitchen stuff for my stay. Perhaps only trouble was my plug was a little too small for the kitchen sink, and the water did not run hot enough to wash dishes well so I had to boil the kettle, but otherwise an excellent stay. Not super close to town but only 5 minutes by car or a little longer by bicycle. Todd River right outside the resort was really nice to walk along.
