Relaxing stay at eMotel, absolute enjoyed it.
We had an amazing stay at eMotel. The Staff was friendly and helpful. All the faicilities are clean, almost all the equipments and furnitures are brand new and it is newly rennovated. Location wise is also perfect since it very close to most of the restaurants.

Good 6.0
Average stay. Nice view of the lake though.
Very average motel. Did the job we needed it to but I wouldn't stay here Again. Have stayed in nicer places that cost less. The main bedroom had no heating. The bathroom could do wit a spruce up and a really good deep clean. The water cooler didn't work so should be removed. The reception lady was nice and friendly. Though when we went to check out there wasn't anyone in the office so we went away and got breakfast and came back to hand the key in.

EMotel rates highly
Our room was clean and comfortable, we couldn't fault it. We stayed for 3 nighrs and could have stayed longer without issue. Sisi was very helpful and friendly. In this price range it would be hard to beat. Close to city centre and the lake. We would recommend any length of stay here.
