3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
The property was close to city centre. At time of our stay many guests were there and a lot shouting arguing and swearing which waa not nice especially with family and little kids. The facilities were pretty basic
Stayed 3 nights in Dec 2020

3/5 Okay

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We regret that the facilities were not as good as we have experienced on past visits. In spite of the request for guests to clean after use (with a surcharge if not cleaned) the glassware was very dirty, and the electric jug did not work (it was replaced on our second day). It would appear the motel had been used as accommodation during the covid lock down which may account for the lower standard. Motel "rules" include request to "not intimidate other guests", a first in our years of travelling.
