Great to have a little playground for the kids which included a trampoline. Easy to find & lots of room for parking a large car.

I was really disappointed with the room. On the ad the room was listed as an Executive Studio with kitchenette, microwave, cookware... there was nothing to cook on/with other than the microwave. Being able to make my own food is the only reason I booked this hotel. The wifi was terrible too! The rooms definitely look better on the website than in person. I definitely wont stay here again but if your after a cheap room, then that's what you'll get

This room type you explained as executive is not how we advertise this room on any sites. This deluxe room is not advertised as having a kitchen on any sites. This is the only room out of 24 rooms that does not have kitchen facilities. and we dont advertise the deluxe room it states it is more of a motel room. It has a fridge, a microwave, white ware is available and utensils and a sink. More then most motel rooms. The fact that this room has quality triple sheeting linen reverse cycle air conditioner. Ensuite bathroom certainly does not make this a budget room. The price you paid $125 at that time of year is extremely reasonably priced. and this would be the first negative response we have had about this room type.

Hi thanks for taking the time to reply we appreciate this. all of our 24 rooms have either a kitcheneete faciltiy or a full kitchen. Our rooms are large we have dining tables for you to eat. most new motels your lucky to be able to walk around the beds and have more then a kettle and toaster. So we offer alot more facilties at cheaper price. Kind regards
