  5. What is it about people who Beth at Westhaven? HMB, WestPark, orakei and Bayswater Al charge about the same, have less parking and less facilities plus are much further away from decent links yet there are no threads on here moaning and complaining about them. What do they do better, despite having less facilities and changing the same money?
