The unit was very well-equipped with microwave, cutlery, plates, mugs, glasses - most things you would need really. Nice modern bathroom, but no bath - though we were in the cheapest room I think. Good location if you have no car too, as you can walk into town easily - it's very central.
The spa was just a hole outside the bathroom that you stepped into. You fill it up with a tap, but the ground is very hard so you might want to bring something to sit on in there (submerge it under the water and sit on it - otherwise you are sitting on pebbled concrete, ouch!) Very nice to relax and look at the stars though, while having a wine. However, there is no bubble bath provided, and you really need it, as otherwise it is just water in a concrete square - so bring your own.
Road noise was quite bad. I am a very light sleeper, so I had to wear earplugs and have a sleeping pill each night. If road noise is a problem for you, I'd recommend asking for a room away from the road - you are basically right on the road in many of the rooms.
We stayed 3 nights and had to ask after 2 nights for clean towels and a room spruce up. Felt a bit embarrassed asking, but when they came and did it, it was done very well. Perhaps there was a sign to put out that we missed to ask for the room to be made up.
