  • 2.0.Poor

    The Property looks run down with fading peeling paint. There was a constant noise in the ceiling or close by that sounded like a pressure relief valve that was going of every 3 to 5 mins all night and day. The locks on the door did not work including the dead bolt. It was so bad we had to ring reception in the morning as we could not get out of the room. The windows would not lock at all. There was no hot water in the hand basin. You had to run the hot water in the shower at maximum without cold and was only just hot enough for a shower. The smoke alarm looked like it was broken and properly didn't work. The basin cabinet was full of water rot and the drawers and doors would not close. To cover up most of the water rot damage the bottom of the cabinet had black and yellow tape around it. All the bins around the outside of the premise were full and overflowing hence I suppose for all the rat baits and mouse baits around the place and in the room. Overall the most unpleasant stay I have had anywhere and the place needs to be inspected by the health authorities and have their licence suspended.

    Not so great

    The motel is very old, and if look from the street you would not stay there. Outdoor area no decent seating, and you would not sit there anyway as the grassed area is not looked after and an old lawnmower laying around. No cushions on seats either . If you want to have people staying the front of motel needs to be inviting to all

    This is the second time we have stayed here. This time we had a small family room which was 2 bedroom. Plenty of space. Bed very comfortable. Shower lovely and hot. Although an older motel and needs a bit of TLC it is well worth the money

    First thought when I pulled up was “this place looks alright” then when I checked in I wish I never did, they were quite rude, I had never stayed before and they didn’t even tell me where the room was, until I asked. We arrived in the room and I could smell smoke in the room, I proceeded to open the window and it slowly disappeared, I went in for a shower and the water pressure was terrible it drizzled out and the hot water took 5 minutes to heat up and wasn’t that good, never in my life had I showed with just the hot water on. The sheets and towels were clean, the floor on the other hand.. under the bed there was toast, wasn’t ours as we had just arrived, and other adult items. Beds are not comfortable at all woke up sore and had to drive 5hrs home... I probably wouldn’t book again unless there was nothing else around.
