Outdated, cups and glass were small - couldn’t have a coffee in the morning. Room smelt funny. Lack of designated parking and very noisy. Expensive for what it was!

Booking site said there was a restaurant on site. One of the main reasons for booking. Had been closed for some time. Please get the booking site up to date. Motel staff said they had advised the booking site repeatedly. Not good enough. Staff at motel could not have been more helpfull

Hi, Karen thank you for leaving a review. We have rectified the situation with the restaurant, they failed to click the last box on their website. Thank you for bringing it to our attention and they said it will be updated overnight. Regards Westley

The room was small but clean and well kept. Bathroom was particularly small. The room was a bit dated and dark. We were disappointed as the only door opened onto the unshaded carpark, and as we had our dog with us we had to walk her across the hot asphalt to get to the parl on the other side of the building. Would be much nicer if there was access to the garden from the rooms. Generally we felt it was a bit overpriced, though the location was good.

Hi Emma. thank you for taking the time to do a review. We do have dog-friendly rooms which have a second door leading straight into the gardens. We were not made aware you had a dog as they are not allowed in normal rooms without an extra charge for cleaning. The hotel is set for redevelopment this year and we will be removed to make way for a new 9 story hotel, exciting times. Regards Westley
