10/10 Exceptional

Great Value!
Accommodation was great and everything was clean. The pool was such a added bonus with the hot weather.

6/10 Good

Average type accommodation
The single quarters was a small, narrow room (a granny flat essentially) with not much room. It was clean and well maintained. Facilities are limited with a fridge and microwave but there is a full range of DSTV channels.
