We stayed two nights and paid $38 each per night for a unit that slept 4- 6 people. There were quite a few ants about in the kitchens but in another unit a person got a bed full of ants. Upstairs in the chalets has very squeaky floors. The pool needed a clean but was warm and relaxing.

A very expensive motel to have ants and rooms not been cleaned every day. I've been here for 5 nights and since the first day I noticed that the cleaners aren't working well. We were 4, and only one room was cleaned per day. The very first day, one of our beds were entirely covered by ants, and things were... More

This place is old, ugly, lacking in basic amenities, and poorly designed. While it met our basic needs (clean beds, shower, and toilet), we were not happy with our stay. The accommodations, service, and location were all lousy. Our unit was unattractive and had not been updated since the 1970s at the latest. The bathroom flooring was discolored and dirty... More

We stayed in the cheapest room - expecting something small we were very surprised to find the rooms absolutely huge!! We had a seperate bedroom that could be closed off from the lounge and kitchen area with venetian doors, - full kitchen with stove and appliances. large bathroom with seperate toilet. The owners were very friendly and were doing some... More

What a shock, tired, dirty, when asked for milk, there wasn't any, asked to book breakfast, before we saw unit, glad we didn't get one! Told he had none. From the minute we opened the door we knew it was a disaster and with Nelson booked out, we were stuck there for the night . Dirty bedspreads, damp, housekeeping neglected... More

Wish I had reviewed this place before we stayed. Nothing good about it at all. Beds hard, ants ++, no toiletries, have had better shower pressure with a solar shower. Noisy fridge which we had to turn off at night. For the money we considered it a bit poor. Would not stay here again.

The motel was plagued with ants. It was like a 1960s place. No toiletries that one normally has. No table or chairs, just a counter bench with tiny stools. Old furniture, sheets not matching, old carpet and tired décor. No free wi fi, you had to buy cards at $5 per hour. Worst motel we have ever stayed in, for... More

We stayed over the holidays. As others have said, the motel is in a good position in a quiet street but near town. The units are basic but clean. The main problem however is the plumbing, the shower and washbasin look like relics from the 1970s, simply not good enough nowadays. We did see some of the ants others mention,... More

Very happy with our stay so far (still here as I write this). As some have said its not modern looking but it's tidy and our unit is in very good condition. It has new carpet and a comfortable bed. The kids beds are memory foam and very comfy. The pools has been great fun and the manager is very... More
