It was a lovely big room with a huge bathroom and spa. My only criticism is the TV was rather small.

Our stay at Cardiff was a last minute plan and we hit the jackpot with this Motel! Friendly staff, clean and spacious facilities for our family of 3 and close to all areas we visited around Newcastle. Also located near a large supermarket.

10/10 Exceptional

Really well maintained motel, the brickwork makes it look a bit dated but everything was clean and the beds and couch seemed to be recent purchases. Our 2 bedroom unit was incredibly spacious compared to other motels. Checkin was easy, the fish lines were great for the kids to look at. Would definitely stay here again.
