“A pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

The motel is close to the centre of town on a main road (we weren't disturbed by any road noise). We checked in late (after 9pm) and as we entered our room we weren't sure what to expect, but what a pleasant surprise! As we opened the door we smelt a very pleasant scent in the room. Another pleasant surprise was to see a full HD television. Towels were white and fluffy, the room very clean and well presented. The room itself was basic but roomy, and the beds were comfortable.
Negatives were the airconditioner was very noisy and there was a loud hammer in the shower waterpipes.
We appreciated the welcome too. Although arriving late, we easily found an envelope addressed to us in the Returned Keys box outside the office. Inside the envelope was our room key and a receipt for payment of the tariff. (Rooms must be paid for on arrival). At our departure we had a pleasant and very helpful conversation with the proprietor. Well done!
We would have liked to have had breakfast there but the motel doesn't provide breakfast, although there is a small building containing a communal kitchen. There is a pool which is closed "for repairs".

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Arriving late ..check in was a little confusing ..even though we did advise in advance time we would be there ..we were meet by two young girls who were fooling round in the office and had to bang on the door to get their attention.
The room ..rooms were basic ..we had a family style room that slept six ..plenty of room but dim lighting ..large shower ..clean bed linen etc
Car park was very tight for parking and not well lit
Price wise okay considering there was a concert on at Hope estate and all motels etc seem to jack up the price on such weekends
A very basic breakfast served so we ate at McDonalds each morning
Overall average place but could do with a paint job
