We apologise if your room was not cleaned. Had you let the reception know this could have been rectified immediately. Not sure if you mean the room was dirty when you entered or if the room was not serviced.

This motel would be 5 star if they just spent money on doing it up. Very old facilities, bathroom so old I had to kneel to clean my teeth over sink, no towel rails and nowhere to put clothes etc to keep dry only on toilet seat. The artificial grass on walk ways need to be taken away as when wet (and at this time is all the time) it smells wet and musty. No milk in room, had to ask. Also 3 person room and only 2 towels supplied, had to ask for extra towel as well. Staff very accommodating but I have stayed twice now but I won’t be back unless it has a lot of updating done. Overpriced but I suppose you are paying for view.

Thank you Wendy for your feedback. We apologise your stay was not up to your normal high standard.

Mostly very good. Much nicer than one would expect for normal “motel”. Doesn’t have the amenities one would expect of a “hotel”, such as room service. Long walk from shops where can buy food. Clean, comfortable, pleasant ambience, helpful staff.
