Clean and tidy motel. Friendly staff. Warm rooms and comfy beds. A small bathroom and water pressure was quite low

Loved the quiet location with the mountains as the backdrop. The ground floor entry with a private patio was a lovely bonus.

3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
To be honest we were somewhat disappointed with Sunset Motel. The fridge in our room was broken, the thermostat didn’t work and they were obviously aware of this as it was unplugged when we arrived. We plugged it in with the consequence that everything in it froze!! The young man on reception gave lip service but I believe the next person to stay will experience a similar problem. There was also a problem with drinking water in the village and there were many signs stating that all water needed to be boiled before use. There were no signs displayed or information given about this at the motel.
