My room was Refurbished but Room had smell, when complained I could've been moved but already unpacked. Bathroom so small and badly designed you have to stand in the shower to close the bathroom door to use the toilet. Restaurant/bar doesn't open til 6 so miss the sunset over the water! No views from any of the rooms as far... More

We had a renovated room but the bathroom remains very small and the parking awkward to get out of due to the fence which made backing out a problem. We stayed one night on our way home. We would probably recommend it to friends with a small car.

On the beachfront, nice restaurant, continental breakfast included. Comfy, clean and modern room, free wifi, and most of the premises has been renovated. Handy to museum, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Friendly and helpful staff.

The room we had was fantastic not that we got to enjoy it due to work and a lot of mishaps. We had a refurbished room so clean. Location to die for don't put your rates up and you will be full all the time. Bonus had our own balcony.

We stayed at the El Paso Motel a week ago and were very pleased with our stay. The motel room was very clean, obviously newly renovated, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the shower pressure was fabulous - something you don't often get. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. We checked in after a long day travelling and... More
