We chose this accommodation because our usual accommodation couldn't accommodate the number of people travelling in our family and we had little children with us. We thought the playground would be useful but alas it was a little tired. The accommodation itself was comfortable but the décor and facilities a little dated. A little worry was the note saying to... More

We picked this hotel for early morning leave for the airport.The room was like a workers cottage, very basic but that's ok for an overnight stay. Dated little kitchenette, fridge, microwave, toasters, jug, but they were all clean. We chose this little motel because of the free airport shuttle service but In the morning,we had to wake the driver up... More

Great size family unit. 2 bedrooms plus main area. Great easy pickup from airport and delivery back to the airport at 6am. Unit was clean with no smells. Beds were very comfortable with crisp clean sheets. Bathroom was clean as was kitchen. Management were very responsive to our complaint of noise at 1130 pm. For a family of 6 with... More

Pros: The owners are quite nice. The place is clean. Reliable transport to the airport Cons: Not the safest neighbourhood. Many cars have been stolen outside this hotel. The room is dated. The bathroom light would go off and on by itself, drain was partially blocked, and the toilet dripped through the night. Only 200 megabytes of Internet provided a... More

This was an average stay. The room was clean but I had to ask for a hairdrier. The paint was peeling off the ceiling in the bathroom and the toilet dripped incessantly which kept waking me up during the night. The bed was comfortable and clean. The towels needed replacing as the edges were ragged and frayed.

Despite not a very good previous comment we read, we found out that the hotel was greatly improved! Comfortable beds, extra of pillows, clean sheet & complete & clean utensils. Room facing garden and pool.

We booked this hotel about eight months out from the Eagles concert. Before confirming my booking I checked that the courtesy coach was available to drop us at the concert and was assured that it was. When we arrived to stay and I enquired what time the coach would leave I was told that there wasn't on, and the owner... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating and we truly appreciated the free shuttle. However, there was no notice that major 24 hour road construction was occurring right in front of this property which kept me up ALL night. I didn't feel extremely safe and the bed was uncomfortable. Otherwise it is outdated and noisy, with some shady guests and/or people... More

The motel itself was ok and functional the rooms were adequate, and the free shuttle bus service was great as there was virtually no other shops or even eateries nearby. The staff were very helpful, and the motel had a pool
