“Shabby - pictures are misleading”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017
person found this review helpful

Only way to describe is shabby, overprices and misleading marketing.

Ended up booking this place as temporary accommodation for an international relocation. 100% pay up front and at these prices expecting a nice place. Sadly disappointed and would certainly not recommend. Also - the house is located on a main street, not the quiet side street showing on the website. Very noisy and feels a little unsafe as the rear access is easily open and visible from the street (no curtains). The back door has a big gap in it, so again easy access for 3rd parties.

Overall - the pictures are very misleading. The place is run down, cracks in all the walls, no curtains in the back even though you are exposed to the street and the sun, full of the owners personal belongings (blue tape on all the closets) with little space for guest storage, dirty old pans and well worn cutlery and kitchen utensils, run down back yard, broken chairs, only one old TV operational, only one small airco unit which is insufficient for the house, dirty broken BBQ, broken dryer, etc. etc.

The house is also very noisy from the street.

Feels more like my old student house than a luxury short stay - which it how it is currently marketed. Would not recommend, especially at these prices.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   No.
