Room was filthy and dated. Carpet not vacuumed, mould on curtains, sheets so worn that the mattress is visible through them, toilet door jammed shut, bed smells musty... PLEASE STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!

We booked in to this motel as we were looking for one that had a restaurant on site. The family unit we were given was very dated & although it was clean & didn't smell, it was in great need of some attention. The beds were very uncomfortable, the curtains old & ripped, the shower pressure was almost non-existent (&... More

A smile costs so little but was obviously more than the owners/managers/staff here could manage. Just a smile and some communication would have made such a difference when everything else was already falling apart. Dirty sheets, items left behind from previous occupants, a shower both tiny and dirty, not enough coffee mugs (but luckily enough wine glasses), only one key,... More

I have no idea how this motel is able to pass an inspection!! The shower was filthy with mould, there was a pair of trousers under the bed from the previous occupant and no one had vacuumed under there for months! The freezer hadn't been cleaned for months. The carpet was shabby to say the least as are the curtains!... More

Booked to stay here because my block course was here and i am very disappointed with my stay as when I first arrived looking for where I was meant to go there was a lady standing in the driveway waiting for cars waving them down to park somewhere else, then I asked do you know where the block course is...

Had 2 nights here. We would have left immediately but we'd paid in advance. We bought a special on line and was soooooo disappointed. Where to start! Noisy, smelt, very poor repair, drawers without handle, hole in door, totally sub standard bathroom. The only thing that was ok was the bed. Never again. Wish we'd checked Trip Advisor.

Average accommodation. Some rooms better than others. No note pad or pens. Only one little oil heater. Wallpaper falling off the wall. Poor lighting. Average stay for average price. In need of an upgrade. Front units had road noise but rear ones were quiet.

One night and one night too many. I regret to say the one and only positive aspect of the overnight stay was the lovely young lady at the reception at check in. The carpet was dark and yet you could still see it was riddled with uncleaned patches or stains whichever is applicable. There were cobwebs in the main area,... More

Room was not good enough. In dire need of an upgrade, wallpaper hanging off the walls, cigarette burns in the basin, bath leaked so mouldy skirting boards. But most of all the room had large dirty grease marks on the carpet from the doorway, half way across the room. It look so gross that you didn't want to walk over... More
