2/10 Poor

I didn't like anything about this property. The picture shown is nothing like the room I was given. I was travelling solo and I was given a room that slept 5. The room was filthy and very uninviting. They are certainly not cleaning to a covid19 standard if in fact they are cleaning at all. The heater had been sat on and was caved in on the top. The TV remote fell apart into 3 pieces. The net curtains by the door were shredded. The drapes didn't fit the windows. The cutlery had dried food on it. The venetian blind on the front door hang with a gap at the side so privacy was an issue and it let the very bright light from the outside light in. The room smelt awful. The fire escape stairs were blocked by overgrown plants and rubbish. This was the most expensive motel on my 5 day trip and the worst I have ever stayed in. I will never book this motel again!

4/10 Fair

Old and in need of a complete renovation. Furniture was old and worn out (covered by old bedding sheets) electric socket hanging out of the wall (held in with sellotape), no hot water in the kitchen, microwave was digusting - paint peeling off and covered in rust, no door on the toilet, bedroom door didn't fit so wouldn't close. Heating was not would be expected in motels. DEFINITELY NOT UPTO STANDARD OF MOTELS OF SIMILAR COST MOTELS.

I liked that the property was so close to town. I did not like the outside light which you cannot turn of shining in throgh the door all night. I did not like that there were no extra blankets or pillows. Yes I did ask for an extra blanket which took over 20 minutes to arrive.
