This was our third stay at the Golden Glow, and four and a half years since we last reviewed it. Not much has changed! The unit had been very freshly decorated, and was clean, spacious and very comfortable.
What we like about it is its location - you can walk downtown if you wish - but with none of the noise associated with city stays. The private, freshly filled spa pool is heaven. There is no noise from other units, and the management are pleasant and efficient. The fresh fish and chips from the takeaway on the corner were superb. It was an excellent base for our visit, and we will definitely come back.
Our only niggle - and it is a minor one that we meant to mention to the management but forgot - is a lack of towel rails in the bathroom - and perhaps a shelf for toilet bags, rather than having to put them on the floor.
