4/10 Fair

Close to amenities. A bit derelict. In great need of reno. Staff pleasant and accomodating but rooms very tired. Threadbare carpet, water damaged walls all around skirting. Very reasonable price however. Would stay again because of price and convenience and better prepared of what to expect.

not even a bedside light, very noisy, rooms old and could do with a basic renovation, good location though, close to everything including a supermarket

6/10 Good

Handy to central station
Room a bit run down. Paint peeling, bathroom vanity rotting around the base. Only one blanket between 2 beds, otherwise only a sheet?

6/10 Good

The motel room was adequate. The tap in the basin in the bathroom was a little on the "wobbly" side and a couple of the power points were loose.

Worst ever.
Dirty, smelled rank. It was cheap, but they couldn't pay me to stay there again.
