Very old and tired. Needsa complete renovation (in progress I think). Bathroom in a sad state. Toilet cistern leaking onto floor. Hotel management very casual and left a towel on the floor in the hope of stemming the flow! We were not offered another room. The wine glasses were filthy and had to be washed before we could use them. The cupboard under the sink was filthy.

Unsure with your review as there is no substance to it? An anonymous review with no detail is difficult to respond to or even validate.

Nice clean, relaxing motel. The outside area around the pool will be good when it’s landscaped a bit more but there are plenty of tables and bbqs so it’s easy to spend a lot of time outside.

Thanks for your review, with regards to your booking we provided the room configuration as booked. We don't use bin liners because we like to protect the environment, many hotels do the same. Its great to know that you enjoyed your room & stay :)
