stayed here for conveniency only as last resort. Read other reviews and knew it was average. The room was bare and not welcoming at all. yes we had trouble with the channels and tv turning off automatically. The cleaners are obviously short as the blinds above the bench were filthy along with the window ledge and windows...... never cleaned! No... More

I would stay here again because basically the room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfy. However be aware that there are some quirks. The TV channels were not working, Sky, and on reading other reviews looks like that has been the case for some time. So the owner did give me free access to the internet instead... More

Only one light in ceiling out of three was working. Only one bedside light working - one was not. Shower head useless was loose as and floppy, not a good shower at all. No salt in salt shaker was empty. Only thing good about it, it was close to venue for a Lions convention.

Don't bother with this Motel. I booked a room two nights before, giving credit card details, saying we would be arriving after 6.00pm & they said this was fine. We turned up & they had rented our room out & had no other vacanies. Try somewhere else! Absolutely appalled with service!

Stayed for one night, and that was enough. It seems the owners/management are not interested. Mould on curtains and in bathroom, very dated décor and the premises are not well looked after. The room was also not cleaned well. Not worth spending hard earned money at.

I am not one to complain but for 150 per night for a couple I would've expected a bit more. Cleanliness really poor - hair in the shower on arrival, stains on blankets, sticky kitchen benches and although I didn't come away for TV, there are only 3 channels as our Freeview box is broken. The hosts seemed nice but... More

My husband and I stayed at the Golflands Motel because it was very close to the venue for a wedding we attended. The first impression was not good. The gardens had tall weeds growing through them and while the bedding was clean the place looked tired and other areas did not give the impression of cleanliness required in a motel... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The television, bathroom, and decor was dated but it's easily bareable. The wi-fi service is abit unpleasant with connection and speeds but does the job (was warned by reception about quality so was happy to not be lied to). Also about the wifi, there is no login system (e.g skype WiFi)... There is only one... More

I stayed at the Golflands motel for one week. The room was quite large, a bit dated, but pretty much clean. All the crockery was clean, and you get a complimentary small carton of milk when you arrive. A really nice feature was that somewhere between 10:00 and 1:00 each day all of the towels were replaced, toilet paper replenished,... More
