The restaurant was closed till January, The two cups I left out were not washed when the service was done over all would not stay... More

Friendly staff, good food in the restaurant and a good night sleep what more could you want. I stayed in a really nice standard room, after reading these reviews I was surprised as my room was very modern with nice bedding and all the works (bed was very comfy) slept well and left in the morning with a full belly...

Were running a bit late as we wanted to travel across Putty Road but was getting dark so came across this Motel on the main road and decide to give it a go. No complaints. Clean room and restaurant was fine.

Located on a main road, the traffic is never ending. The rooms are very 1980's and musty. The bed was comfortable, but the pillow has seen better days. The zircon was old and noisy. The staff at reception were friendly. If you are desperate this motel is ok, but its poor value for money given the other hotels in the... More

Yes the motel is run down but its clean and tidy. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant. Family run and they and their staff were all nice and helpful. Close to shopping centre. Richmond is a very historical town.

Its hard to rate this type of motel, it was dated but provided a clean tidy room with adequate services. It is a stopover not a place to spend a holiday. Breakfast was good and the 1 litre coffe option a rare treat. My luggage had been delayed and the staff happily placed it in my room when it arrived.... More

Booked on spur of the moment as travelling through Richmond so didn't do any homework before arriving - sadly. Very over priced motel given the lack of service and the tired dated rooms. There is no one on reception until 9am and I think that is to avoid the complaints as guests leave. The air con was old, knackered and... More

Despite the mixed reviews I stayed here for one night. Beds clean and comfy. Nice aircon but shower shocking. Water temp constantly varing from cold to scalding hot with not enough pressure to wash the soap off let alone wash away the cockroachs that kept crawling out of the drain hole

Complex old and dated otherwise reasonably clean. Had read previous reviews noting comments re top of cupboard being dirty. The cleaners are obviously short people as only the front had been cleaned not the whole top. We could see it! Bed, bedding and pillows excellent. Hand basin very marked and discoloured which detracted from overall look of cleanliness. Shower nice... More
