Stayed here in October, we had a 1br apartment RM148 that was located in an acquired block of units located next door to the main hotel block.
The room had been recently refurbished, with new carpet. Rm 148 is located at the black of the block of units, so it was really nice and quiet.
There is a small sofa that folds out to a single bed, our daughter slept on it and said it was fine. The room had a new split system air conditioner that more than did the trick, as well as a great kitchenette facility with large fridge (with separate freezer on top), sink, dishwasher, oven etc, with tea/coffee facilities. It was well set up.
There is a glass enclosed shower (No dodgy shower curtain) in the bathroom, and the toilet is separate which is handy when there is more than one person staying. Car parking was available in the area that the unit was.
Friends were staying in some of the rooms in the new part of the hotel - they said they were really nice, and I checked out one of the studio rooms in the first block of the double storey places and it was really lovely - it is worth asking to be placed into a newer room when you are booking to stay there.
Check=in was efficient, quick and friendly.
The only issues we had were that there was no direct access to the main part of the hotel, that didn't involved going up to the main street area and around - they really need to put a gate in at the end of the fence where you go round the corner to that unit - that was you don't have to worry about kids going out on the road.
There is a small indoor swimming pool, but it is right in the middle of the car-park area which is a bit hazardous, and you can only sit inside the pool area to supervise kids - which given the strong chlorine smell isn't a pleasant experience! There aren't any "green" areas or bbq area that I could see to sit outside or anything either.
The hotel isn't far from the street, about 500-700m, and it is quite a flat walk so it is well placed to the shops and things.
Overall for the price we paid ($130 per night) it was a good deal for that room (even if we didn't get a full room service for the two nights we were there due to how busy it was - however they did ask if we needed a full service or just fresh towels, as we were needing to in the room at the time we just opted for the towels).
