Great location, very clean and tidy. Kitchen facility excellent in unit. Comfortable beds and slept well. Excellent pool and spa for family. Heat pump would be great in rooms! However all rooms had heaters and fans for comfort. Great stay.

The check in lady was a lot of fun. Check in fast easy and hassle free. Nothing I didn't like.

Great location and the reception lady was very helpful. We have stayed there before and liked it, but had one of the rear units. This time we were in the end top floor unit right next to the main highway and the traffic noise was terrible, particularly on the Sat night. Sun/Mon weren’t as bad but still not great. Perhaps the worst thing though was the not so stale smoke smell - for a room with ‘no smoking’ signs (albeit a small sand bucket right outside the door), the smell was ridiculously strong (to the point where I even had to wash clothes I hadn’t worn when I got home). The entire property really needs to be smoke free - you just can’t be renting out units that smell that bad. On the positive side, the kitchen was fully equipped, beds were comfy, great blackout curtains and, as above, the Receptionist was very helpful.

the heater didn't heat well, the shower nozzle didn't stay up, I booked for 1 adult and 1 teen there was no linen and 1 blanket for the pull out couch. It had good wifi and was clean.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the past weekend and we were very disappointed. Although the location was fine, the motel itself is very dated and run down. Our room was shabby and the bed was extremely lumpy and uncomfortable as were the pillows. I woke up feeling slighly stiff and sore back from sleeping on it, and I was very worried how my husband would fare as he is currently suffering from a serious back injury - thankfully he didn't appear any worse! We had a few ants running around the kitchen and bathroom as well. The one positive about the room was the good shower pressure! For the price we paid, we did NOT get any value for money, and we felt very ripped off..very disappointed. We will never stay here again.

Good welcome but property somewhat tired

Pros: Good location, excellent welcome, good advice given to local attractions.
Cons: Only humans in the room.
Location: City park nearby, a short walk, lovely place.
Made very welcome, on busy road but not a problem. Room was a little tired, sadly we were not alone as ants were present in the kitchen and bathroom, maybe in the main room, didn't like to look too hard where we had to sleep! Manager said it was a problem they were in the process of dealing with.
