Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The bathroom was very clean. However, there was a layer of dirt and grit on all surfaces in the bedroom. The vinyl floor did not look very clean. I wiped all surfaces with Detol wipes and threw them in the bin. Discovered a window was stuck down; so I fixed it. The window and screen were filthy. Car parking spaces are very narrow and no obvious signage externally (facing the road) of the name of the motel. Staff were not welcoming. This motel should only be rated 2 and was very overpriced for the low standard. Will not stay here again.
