8.2.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    The motel was quite comfortable and well equipped. Whilst it was well priced, it was a bit too far from the beaches, restaurants etc. There was a shopping centre just a short walk away. One night the smoke detector started beeping just above our heads at 3am, requiring a somewhat difficult challenge to disable it so we could try to get a bit more sleep. With regular checks and battery changes, this would and should be avoided.

    At 10:00 PM there was a party in the carpark outside and was very loud and no consideration for other guests that had to get up early. No one came and told them to quiet down or to go into their rooms.

    last minute stop due to a storm

    Reception was locked when I arrived at 5pm, it was raining, & cold. I had no idea I had to do self checkin until I went back to the car to get my glasses to read the note on the door. a difficult process for Seniors! spa bath was nice & relaxing but a hand rail needs to be installed, so you don't slip getting in & out like i did. sperate shower in a old bathroom, the shower was very small.

    Room was large and clean. The only problem I had was with the doors. Every time one closed you could hear it all over the motel. I’m sure if some padding was put between the doors and the jams will help immensely
