Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was spacious and the bed comfy. A small sofa in the living area was nice. I don’t like fixed head showers, rather old fashioned. Also would have liked more shelves/storage - the bedside tables were so small there wasn’t room for anything apart from the bedside lamp. The motel has a garden area with seating but is on a busy main road.
