5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Staff at check-in was fab. Down to Earth and excellent customer service. Nice mineral pools. Rooms better then reviews. Downfall is housekeeping only provide a clean towels. Don’t take the rubbish etc, don’t service the rooms just pop a towel on the bed. Motel kitty is a absolute cutie and a bonus though :)

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Room was in poor condition needing a ceiling paint and wall touch up. The bench had the top falling off and lights needed replacing. The TV would only work on 1 channel.
