It's nothing flash, one of those two-level motel buildings built around parking bays but it has what you'd expect - fridge, TV, basic storage space, aircon, windows that will open, decent linen -and it's location is very good, as is the price.
Half the room is taken up with floor tiles and half with carpet, not a brillant look and while on the subject of minor whinges, it has liquid soap dispensers only so I end up using the soap I take from other hotels to use in hotels that only have liquid soap dispensers.
In common with a lot of hotels, the double bed isn't a double but two singles joined together so you end up sleeping, on either side even when on your own.
But loads of power points with half of them at waist height.
