    4/5 Good

    Bistro food was great. Leaking taps in bathroom not great, toilet often kept running.

    Stayed 2 nights in Nov. 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    This was perfect for our purposes. Not flash but so comfortable! Family room has massive King room and massive twin room. TV in each room. Kids have to come through King room to use the bathroom - no big deal! Spa bath too. Reception staff member was lovely.

    Lack of maintenance. For example 1 door to bathroom Not closing properly. 2 carpet ruffled looking tired . There are various others area's within the room You could be critical of. However the real issue is the general appearance of the venue. The bones of the structure is there but perhaps the management of the motel side somewhat negligent or maybe constrained by a budget. One reason sometimes causes another. However might l say that we only stayed one night ant it served its purpose. Thank you.
