This is a very budget motel so you get what you pay for. Its old and run down. Probably would say grotty. However it had a working tv, jug and tea and coffee. There is good pressure in the shower and nice and hot - at lease for a while. Beds are old but probably the biggest negative for me... More

This place needs to be demolished. We stayed 3 nights and nearly walked out during the first. Fortunately (or is that unfortunately) my wife got a good nights sleep. Budget is an overstatement. The basics of 21st century accommodation is sadly lacking with relation to the unit's walls, chattels etc. Water mark below toilet cistern running down wall, rusty water... More

Had to book accommodation on the cheap and last minute for a job interview that wouldn't fork out the cash themselves. Stayed two nights. Picked this place for closeness to interview and price. Experience wasn't a great one. I expected nicer even for a budget motel. Room including beds and pillow smelt of stale smoke and possibly BO. Room was... More

Ok so this is a budget motel and it doesn't try to be anything else. So fair enough. But it really is budget. Bargain basement. Except you don't feel you are getting a bargain. The room was basic which is fine, but it was also not clean. There were some very unsavoury stains on the old chair, cobwebs to freak... More

We booked the cottage for our family.... The beds were sunken, wallpaper ripped off the walls, cobwebs where the phone was, mould on the curtains and nets to name a few! We had "visitors" on day 2... Ants and cockroaches, the lightbulb fell out in the bathroom and when I went and told the owner about it the answer was... More

This place is very run down. There are holes kicked in the walls, the shower floor moved and felt like it was about to collapse, the toilet door wouldn't close, the curtains were dirty and didn't cover the windows, light fittings were falling off the wall, smoke alarm missing, cobwebs and spiders everywhere. The place is old and falling down.... More
