Place is clean and tidy and furniture is all relatively new.
It's accomodation at basic level with no frills.
Perhaps having just arrived from Queenstown where accomodation was top notch, this was disappointing .
Bed room slippers were not provided, a shower which had a wild spray shooting out , and wifi access was poor. We were given a code to access wifi - 50mb free which depleted really quickly with only 2 checks of email .. despite attempting to use it sparingly.
Other motels around us boasted free unlimited wifi .. So this was unsatisfactory.
Do come with your own back up or pre paid wifi card then !
Breakfast was nice with a good spread of fruit. Hot breakfast does tend to come out a little burnt but they do accommodate your requests . What was lovely was the coffee machine where you could have a latte or cappuccino.
