2/5 Poor

Business traveller
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Probably my fault for booking a cheaper motel than I normally would ,the rooms are very dated with shower and spa bath in very average condition ( the spa bath was an advertised amenity and it didn't work )having said that the bed was comfortable and the room warm
Stayed 1 night in Jun 2021

3/5 Okay

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
It was clean, sheets & towels spotless. Very old though & rather shabby. The 3rd bed in the bedroom blocked the wardrobe & dressing table & 2 doubles in the lounge seemed a bit over the top. Paint on the window panes in kitchen & bathroom made it look grubby & the bathroom door had obviously been soaked at some time as the veneer was lifting at the bottom. Shower old & one wall tile cracked & nowhere ti put the soap. A bit of attention to detail would make it quite nice

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Tired and run down. In need of maintenance and renovations. Cleaning staff were present every day but the room just didn’t feel clean due to the condition e.g curtains torn, paint peeling, stains/marks on walls, brown stains in spa. All things you’re not able to see in the on-line photos.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not pleasant.
The room we stayed in was flithy and dirty. Mold and dust every where. They need an upgrade. Everything is old in the room. It was disgusting. Luckily we only stayed one night. Would not recommend.
