  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

This motel is on a corner location with two busy roads. Rooms on the outside get a lot of road noise and noise from rubbish preparation/collection. We ordered a room with a spa to find that it did not work. I suspect it has not worked in some time as after I'd had a bath there were a lot of deposits in the water. The staff were delightful and eager to please. Everything was very clean. It feels like it's been purchased fairly recently and the owners haven't yet got around to updating everything.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very comfortable bed and good shower. Staff were very polite and courteous and very obliging. Free fruit and/or lolly at check in and check out is a novel idea. Room was good value with kettle, toaster, microwave and good sized fridge. We stayed two nights and had our laundry washed and dried by the hotel for no cost. A great marketing idea.
