The motel is conveniently located right in the CBD. We are currently undergoing a facelift, there have been quite a few changes to How the motel looks, with the new owners having spent further plans to refurbish the interior. Thank you for your feedback and it is important to us.

Currently small areas of renovation. These are not a significant issue. Should be good in the long term.

So close to town, town green, beautiful walks. Renovations in progress - access via stairs uncomfortable and hard. Parking awkward. Please put tissues in rooms.

Good Location, but hotel room pretty well worn & looking tatty ..hotel foyer update looking good. Room 14, cleaniness thru the tatty seemed ok (but could do with good Vac), couple of small equipment issues. Bedding clean & comfortable. Balcony smallish & acouple of mixed seat types, view to water ok (across road etc) & being closer to road noise was an issue (also in room with door open, but ok closed) Inter- room noise noticable (chatter stopped about 1am) along with cig smoke from other balconies. Hall to rooms over looks pool, which could be a nice outlook except windows filthy. Beware, the room description & photos are not accurate ie I viewed a queen or twin 30m2 room, balcony & water views re bed, table & 2 chairs, & setee, but it was crowded with an extra single bed, and measured just 288sqft (26m2) ..so didn't really get what I thought I had booked ? (disappointed) I've had better accomodation for less, so consider your options & especially satisfy the room description/photos accurate to your request before booking.
