The unit was very dated and had not been cleaned properly - lots of crumbs under the table. The settee was well worn and had holes in it and not at all comfortable to sit on. The taps in the bathroom were shabby and dripped constantly. There was a hole in the wall where a door handle had obviously gone...

We booked in to this motel as we were looking for one that had a restaurant on site. The family unit we were given was very dated & although it was clean & didn't smell, it was in great need of some attention. The beds were very uncomfortable, the curtains old & ripped, the shower pressure was almost non-existent (&...

A smile costs so little but was obviously more than the owners/managers/staff here could manage. Just a smile and some communication would have made such a difference when everything else was already falling apart. Dirty sheets, items left behind from previous occupants, a shower both tiny and dirty, not enough coffee mugs (but luckily enough wine glasses), only one key,...

I have no idea how this motel is able to pass an inspection!! The shower was filthy with mould, there was a pair of trousers under the bed from the previous occupant and no one had vacuumed under there for months! The freezer hadn't been cleaned for months. The carpet was shabby to say the least as are the curtains!...

Had 2 nights here. We would have left immediately but we'd paid in advance. We bought a special on line and was soooooo disappointed. Where to start! Noisy, smelt, very poor repair, drawers without handle, hole in door, totally sub standard bathroom. The only thing that was ok was the bed. Never again. Wish we'd checked Trip Advisor.

Average accommodation. Some rooms better than others. No note pad or pens. Only one little oil heater. Wallpaper falling off the wall. Poor lighting. Average stay for average price. In need of an upgrade. Front units had road noise but rear ones were quiet.

One night and one night too many. I regret to say the one and only positive aspect of the overnight stay was the lovely young lady at the reception at check in. The carpet was dark and yet you could still see it was riddled with uncleaned patches or stains whichever is applicable. There were cobwebs in the main area,...
