Sometimes you wandered into a hotel late at night and decided just then to stay, just because that's where the taxi stops. That is the case with Sunderland Motel and I. The name might bring a reminiscence of a Saloon in the Old West, but we are very much far from both the Old West and that timeline. It is actually quite nice, in an average way. The motel is located in the heart of Kuah town, literally, and above a Tax free shopping mini mall, which name escapes me at the moment.
The room are not that spacious, just enough for a king size bed, a small fixed table on the wall that barely fits my notebook and a corridor to the bathroom and the door. The bathroom is acceptable, equipped with an aging water heater with a build-in pump that is making a lot of noise. Despite having the pump, the water pressure is not that great, I probably got a room with a faulty pump.
Despite all that, the room is clean and the bed comfortable. The staff is very helpful and friendly, I had a problem with my credit card service and I was short on cash but since it was late, they still let me check in and tell me I can pay for the room the next day. Talk about service!. There's also a taxi stand literally outside the hotel and a very close access to every shopping haven in town.
I would still recommend this hotel to people, because it gives a very good service and a very good value for money.
