“Over Priced”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I stayed at this place as it was on BBX and had previously stayed through Bartercard. This time the room I stayed in had obviously been redecorated (partly), bathroom was good, however, drapes in the studio room faded and not block outs, chair needed repadding and recovering, mattress was tired (and doesn't bare thinking about!!). As this motel backs onto the Motorway perhaps they should invest in double glazing windows for the units close to the Motorway. Advertise restaurant, what a joke, no information in the rooms. Accidently left my bath robe hanging behind the bathroom door, and you guessed it, no one seems to know anything about it and no-one returns your calls. Have twice stayed here, will not be bitten again. When reading these reviews you will also note that there don't appear to be any replies to any of them from Management!!!!
