We stayed in October 2016 in the 2 bedroom apartment at 56 Forest Drive. It was lovely, clean, spacious and had all the necessary amenities. Breakfast was amazing and the place was central to most attractions and had shopping closeby.

We gave the laundry to the guest house and they did it - didn't see any self laundry facilities. They looked after our luggage after we booked out as we had a late flight.
