I stayed in a studio unit for just one night while some painting was being completed on my home.
It was a very small room but clean and had the essentials.
With it being a very cold night, I decided to try the electric blanket but did notice that there were wires showing on the controls which was a bit offputting.
The parking was great and I love that it's not that far to shopping at Bush Inn and Westfield up the road. Public transport is also very close.
The only thing that really bugged me was the heatpump set up. It had been quickly explained to me when I checked in but I found it really annoying that it would turn off every hour and if you wanted it to continue you had to go right over to the wall and press a button.
It may be that there's some way to turn that annoying feature off... but I didn't manage to so was glad I was only there for one night.
They also seemed to have a couple of dead light bulbs in that room which was a bit annoying for reading.
It's an ideal place for short stays though
