    nice tidy motel with everything we needed,and clean

  • Group of friends

    Close to the city centre but quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy to relax in the room, comfortable beds.

    The shower is a bit low. I'm about six feet tall and the shower head came up to just above my chin. There is also a big step up and down into the shower, so people with injuries might want to note this. The water pressure was so-so.

    Poor facilities in kitchen and bathroom

  • Older travelers

    The location was close to the city and not too far from the airport.

    The bathroom was grotty with black mould visible around the wall tiles and bath area. Also the corners of the room and behind chairs was dusty and dirty.

    very helpful and friendly man at reception

    Room was round the back and felt it was quite isolated

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    It's cheap but the service and facility was substandard as well

    They charged my credit card first for additional fees and informed me later.What a rip off!

  • Older travelers

    handy to city and other amenities

    Backing out onto road

  • Group of friends

    There was no telephone in the unit. I was unable to shower as the shower was over the bath, & I have a back injury, however, in all fairness, I didn't ask about this when I booked.
