  • Very nice. The pool is warm and the sound of the little waterfall provides a soothing backgound, and the garden is lovely, great place to relax and there is a big barbeque. Our apartment was very clean and well appointed. Good parking. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy walking into Russell was probably easier than trying to find a parking spot downtown. I like this place and highly recommend it. 5
