Old fashioned 70s-era motel that hasn't had any real modernisation attempted. Staff member that performed the check-in was new and initially tried to take payment before being informed we had pre-paid through Wotif. Honest misunderstanding. We received a small bottle of milk upon arrival, but when asking for another a day or two later, we were told they had run out, so had to go out and buy some. The 'air conditioner' in the room, which was a small wall-attached unit, shook the entire building when turned on, so was unusable. Ceiling fan in the bedroom worked well once you figured out that '2' was 'Off' and 'Off' was '2'. Free WiFi was good enough to stream live video. No ability to cast to TV. Couldn't get the on-screen TV Guide to work properly (very cheap TVs) but we weren't here for TV so that's ok. Location is reasonably central, just a short flat walk to the town centre. Pool area was closed for the season while we were there so cannot comment on that.

Great for families, swimming pool is great but not heated & no air conditioners which made it difficult when the room had been closed as we were out for the day so made it hard for kids to sleep. Found fan's in wardrobe which did help
