We stayed at the motel in Jan 2021. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with all the things we need to cook as we did not really . People working there were very nice and helpful. They were very responsive to our special request. We took our dog with us and we were having lovely time there.

Thank you for taking the time to review. Hope to see you again.

Stained carpet, the largest-ever cockroach climbing up the door [yes, I know that it's the sub-tropics], cracked tiles and dirty grout in the bathroom, and a hard bed [which might suit some but painful if you have sore hips]. Reception staff in the evening quite rude ["I didn't answer your phone call to the room service number because I was busy:], food very ordinary at both dinner and breakfast. Room service menu very restricted, and restricted further by being told that she didn't have the oven on so quiche wasn't possible. Pet-friendly facilities consisted of a small garden, overgrown with weeds, with a fence inadequate to keep in a small dog. Location suited us, though a fair amount of traffic noise. Facilities overall only average - a very small TV in the corner of the room which could really only be watched from the bed. Overall - passable for the money, but they could do better.

Reasonably clean and tidy but being old needs maintenance. Had 4 nights there and outside walkways not cleaned from rubbish once. Shower was over a spa bath, but bath floor was so convex it was difficult and unsafe to stand on. Still probably best motel in area but not much competition.
