Friendly staff, clean room, gave us a ground floor room so my elderly mother didn't have to climb the stairs. Great location with views of the bay and short walk to city centre, restaurants, cafes and hospital.

The property was within walking distance to the shops which was great. The property was very old and tired looking, as were the rooms. This photo makes it look lovely but it really isn't.

Check in was easy. Although we arrived just after 8pm (when reception closes) alternate arrangements had been made. Our room was spacious although it faced the street amd there was a little noise in the early morning. Staff were friendly. The location is good, close to the waterfront and city centre.

Location was very good. Rooms a bit tired but clean. Overpriced for what we got compared to other Motels on our road trip. Probably because of being in a major town and other places were even dearer.

The hotel was clean. People were parked over two car spaces so it was hard to park. Thank goodness we had a small car.
