We checked in to this motel with the welcome of 'Check out is at 10am, not a minute later' - wasn't sure this was the best start to the hotel or our weekend away. We were then told quite curtly that we couldn't park two cars in front of the unit despite us having no intention of doing so.
We asked the managers if they would mind booking a taxi for us for dinner later that night but were told that we could 'do that ourselves and the 0800 number was on the phone in the unit'. When I tried to call, the number gave a disconnected tone so we dialled the local number instead.
Each time we went back to the reception for maps or information, we felt like we were interrupting and had chosen the wrong places to eat/visit etc.
The unit itself was fine - spacious enough for a group and fitted out well with all the utensils that you need.
Our bathroom door didn't close, even with the lock on the door, and the shower ran boiling hot then freezing cold the whole time we were there.
When we went to check out, we were then charged 50c for the phone call to call the taxi!! I didn't mind paying that but we explained that the 0800 number written on the phone in the unit only gave a disconnect tone and were told that the taxi company turned 'off' their 0800 number late in the day!? We had called at 3pm!
