Pleasant older style motel

New Years' Eve accommodation was reasonably quiet, however the motel staff were renovating with power tools all through the afternoon until around 6.30pm and this seemed unnecessary, given the special occasion and it was annoying as there was no notice in reception to warn potential customers of the noise disturbance.
