4/10 Fair

The property is in a generally poor condition clearly demonstrating the lack of a maintenance program. Walls show damage, light fittings need to be replaced carpet mats fraying and very poor, carpet, curtains, vanity in bathroom, all need replacing. Interior plastering and painting all need rather urgent attention.

Comfortable but needs a facelift
Great motel for families with good cooking facilities. Needs a freshen up though as pretty outdated.

6/10 Good

Lovely hosts and good location. Bed configuration works well with queen and single in lounge area. Having an oven works well for a family wanting to make their own meals. The decor is dated, and walls are thin. Thankfully our neighbors were quiet for the most part. Parking on site is a plenty, and in the summer the pool must be a great addition.

6/10 Good

The body gel dispenser appears to be an ornament in the shower cabinet. It was always empty. We were provided with cakes of soap, which causes dry skin on some people including us. Water from the fridge leaked, flooding the kitchen
