                Nice upgrade”

                Location, convenience, overall good standard

                It was so much closer to the airport than my last place near uSkaka Marine Park, Chris and his staff are very friendly which is always nice. The room was simple, I believe all are ensuite and the bathroom was clean. I was able to park my car in a secure lot, there is a centre across the street with a grocery and bottle store and quite a few shops to wander through. Florida street was two blocks away but it is only advised to go during daylight hours if one person but they do have a food delivery menu if you do not want to prepare your own dinner. The kitchen was probably recently upgraded as it was very clean and modern. If I had to point out a flaw, my sheets did not seem freshly clean, so I just turned everything over/inside out and was satisfied; if given the energy to get up and ask for new bedding I'm sure they would have had corrected it immediately.
