9.4.Exceptional.
  • 8.0.Very good

    On arrival I had to wait minutes before any staff member appeared. The situation of the motels is very pleasant, in tree-lined street and close to the Botannical Gardens. The cleanliness of the motel was only average with dust inside, and cobwebs on the deck windows, and dust around. Room size is excellent.
