Very central! Our only dislike was that we were on the bottom floor, and people upstairs were thumping around for about an hour, hard to sleep when this is going on.

Hi Anonymous Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our motel. SO sorry about the selfish noisy people above you. Had you called reception we could have rectified the issue for you. The building is made with concrete blocks and well insulated so we very rarely have comments as yours, so the guests must have been extremely loud. Apologies.

Very expensive for the type of facilities provided. The room we used was set up for 6 people where it should only be provided as three-four person accomodation.

Hi Anonymous Thank you for your review. The configuration and detailed information on the room would have been available on the site when you booked, so this the room type which you elected to choose. We never changed your room type. We regularly have guests sleeping 6 persons in this room type. As you have chosen to remain anonymous I cannot trace your booking.
