Very good overall but would have preferred not to have the shower over the shub, therefore a step up of probably 60-65cm to get into the shower.

Staff were friendly and very helpful. The laundry lady helped us with our laundry but also gave us a voucher for discount for the Albatross tour. The motel was clean, tidy and the location so close to the centre of town was a bonus.

Thank you for your review. Sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. Please note that only 3 of our 23 rooms are on the top floor, which means that 20 units are lower down! If a ground floor room is requested when the booking is made we will endeavor to fulfill this request, subject to availability. We also have a unit with a walk in shower if requested.

Close to downtown. Badly needs upgrading in windows, heating and access to tub/shower. Not recommended for seniors or physically disabled

Thanks for your feedback. All rooms are equipped with 2kw free standing panel heaters, and additional heaters are located in the wardrobe. Some rooms also have night store heaters, however these are being removed as we put new carpet in the rooms. The glass doors are double glazed, other windows are being resealed when the exterior of the building is painted (2020).
