Reception staff member I met was lovely. Obviously Covid has had an impact on this motel and I have no doubt that the motel used to be quite well maintained. There were lots of little things that were noticed in the room we stayed in that made our stay quite average. The main safety concern was that there was no smoke alarm at all - just a bracket where it used to be. The toaster was broken, fridge was dirty, no toilet paper for over a day, toilet seat broken and not enough mugs. Yes...all minor things but too many for 1 room. The spa bath was great but may not have been used for a while as gunk came out of the jets. I hope the motel improves for future stays.

There was no wifi. I was told they were organising it but procurement had stalled, in fact the internet had slowed to useless. More concerning was the poor condition of the couch and the air conditioner. From about one hour of operation the air conditioner dripped water close to the power point. I was terrified of an electricity incident so I turned it off and put the coffee mug under the drip. It didn't take long to fill up. However, there was already a huge wet patch on the carpet. It was a very hot night but fortunately there were openable windows but, sadly, without fly screens. I have photos of the couch and the water dripping.
