    Spacious room and well furnished kitchenette

    Just stayed one night. Room was spacious and kitchenette was well furnished. Having a jetted tub in the room was a surprise but didn't get a chance to use it.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property was close to city centre. At time of our stay many guests were there and a lot shouting arguing and swearing which waa not nice especially with family and little kids. The facilities were pretty basic

  • 6.0.Good

    We regret that the facilities were not as good as we have experienced on past visits. In spite of the request for guests to clean after use (with a surcharge if not cleaned) the glassware was very dirty, and the electric jug did not work (it was replaced on our second day). It would appear the motel had been used as accommodation during the covid lock down which may account for the lower standard. Motel "rules" include request to "not intimidate other guests", a first in our years of travelling.

    House and Garden decor it is not, but for value it really very good. The property is well maintained, super clean (incl walls, carpets and furnishings) and great value. It does the basics fabulously- great location, privacy and security and has wifi and parking. Communication from the office was great; it was a very stress free good value stay. You won't drown in luxurious decor but what is there is not broken dingy or dirty, and my only personal irritation was the low watt bulbs.
