Again relaxing and good nights sleep here. Been staying here for nearly 10 years now and very pleasant.

Limited office hours seemed a bit inconvenient but a press on the bell got a response within a couple of minutes. This is not a flash motel - it is a typical 70's construction, clean and in good condition. In particular it met my most stingent requirement - the shower had plenty of water and ran at a steady temperature no matter what other users were doing. Reasonable value for money in a convenient location - 10 minutes pleasant walk from many restaurants. Good, easy to access wifi. Good breakfast.

Room 1 was very noisy as it was opposite driveway and car lights lit up our room. Rooms are very tired and small. Bathroom was updated.

The check in process was easy not being able to check in till after 1pm was annoying as the function we had to attend started at 12pm. Room was clean parking space was easy if you reverse park

Fair 4.0
Not coming back
Bathroom door would not close unless you slammed it - door was not sitting in frame. Ironing board was a joke - really!!! How are you suppose to iron on a 60cm tiny ironing board - plus no where but floor to try and iron. Fly screen on sliding door was ripped and full of holes. Air cond was old and extremely noisy. Ash tray on balcony, even though we don't smoke was dirty.. At least had wifi. This is a sample pic of the ironing board.
