    Very small room, bathroom is tiny. My room was located next to the front desk, very noisy at night, barely could sleep.

    Overall the place was great, ideal for a little trip away. Staff was very friendly and room was good and loved the idea of free hot chocolate.

    Hard to find at night :/

    As per my heading, we had a lot of difficulty locating the entrance to the carpark - which has the entrance to the hotel - at night. There are signs, we discovered in the morning, but these signs which indicate that this is the carpark for the hotel are not illuminated. There is nothing visible from the street at night to indicate that there is a hotel hiding around a corner, behind some apartments. Even once we discovered the sign for the hotel and drove in, the carpark itself was not well lit. The closer one got to the hotel, lighting improved slightly. I would not want to be a female alone walking from my car to the hotel entrance, after dark. The receptionist at the hotel was very friendly but also professional. We were given enough information for our stay but there was an understanding that we could ask more questions should we need to. The heating in the room is where the room itself fell down in the scoring. It was complicated to turn on and took a long time to heat the room. However, once the room was warm, the heater did a good job of maintaining the temperature. Other facilities in the room are adequate. Don't expect any luxuries at this hotel. Be wary of unexpected steps! Hidden behind the entrance lobby is a small guest kitchen comprising fridge, microwave oven, toaster & sandwich toaster, as well as plastic cutlery. The continental breakfast was well-stocked with even an automatic hotcake maker! The staff offer espresso or hot chocolate. We'd stay again.

    The staff were lovely and very helpful. The motel looks tired and we stayed their approximately 30 years ago when it was new and it still looks the same.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good value. Small and basic but nice. Lovely helpful staff. Comfortable bed, hot shower, clean, free wifi, plenty of parking. Great location for travelling. Ensuite the smallest I have seen. Fitted like a pod. No shower curtain. No shelves. Shower runs into toilet area and almost out the door. Had to use alll the towels to mop up after. Sink is in bedroom on other side with no hook to hang/dry a towel, meaning inconvenient after using toilet, especially in the night for 2 people. No power sockets near bed. Would stay again though because of the positives..

    I have stayed here two times in the past week and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Great price, clean rooms, free parking, great location and fantastic customer service. Patrick is a fantastic manager who made my stay perfect. He was super friendly and remembered my name. Would recommend to anyone!
