The shower was a little disappointing, one of my favorite things about staying at motels is most have amazing showers. The flow isn't very fast or hard and the shower heads are so small. Comfort or eco friendly... i guess i expect the comfort as thats what your paying for

Room had modern cabinetry and almost everything we needed.. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of car parking available. Mirror was cracked. Toaster and kettle provided, but no plates or knives to use. Only 2 teabags provided. It could have been cleaner, in particular the remote controls, bedside tables and ensuite. We had to enter the gaming area and ask staff for assistance to find reception, as there was no clear signage. The complex has multiple entries.
