Electric blanket or some heating in each bedroom would have been nice, we ended up leaving our doors open to get heat in from the corridor. Shower needed more pressure to be bit more pleasant. But overall, staff were friendly and nice.

10/10 Exceptional

We were allocated an upstairs unit although we had requested ground floor accommodation. We were told this change was made because the upper unit was more spacious and comfortable. I was concerned that the stairs and suitcases could be hazardous for an elderly couple, but the staff insisted that they would take our luggage up and down as required. This they did for us so readily and cheerfully. Our accommodation did prove most comfortable and the stairs weren't a major problem after all. Grateful for the management's help and assistance which added to our enjoyable stay.

2/10 Poor

When we arrived we were told there was not a booking, did find one after about 1/2 hour. Unit was very tiny, very small bathroom with no access facilities which I had asked for. Was a cold night, no electric blanket but worst thing of all was no where to wash crockery and cups, no drinking glasses for water and on enquiring was told to wash dishes in the hand basin. How unhygenic and not a safe practice particully with covid etc. We were charged $130 the same price as all the other units which in my opinion should have been a lot less. We have always stayed at this motel in the past and have been very happy but will not be staying again. There was a black metal fruit stand on the tiny kitchen table that was dusty and very dirty and tbe electric jug leaked as well. In my opinion these premises need reviewing for cleanliness and adequate facilities
