This simple motel is on the northern outskirts of Milton and is okay. The room was a triple (queen bed with one single). It was very small however organised in a smart and effective manner. It is a functional plan that flows well and didn't actually feel small. It was obvious that the room had been freshened/updated in the last couple of years and this helped give the room a warm, welcoming feel.
The bits you would expect from a motel were here, including two twin packs of complementary biscuits, shampoo, conditioner, etc. An added bonus was the fresh milk provided for coffee (I do hate UHT sachets). The bathroom was spacious and had been updated relatively recently. The shower had a great shower-head with fantastic water pressure. Always welcomed!
Out the back of the room was another door to your private balcony that overlooked a serene country view, with the Tasman Sea bracketing the horses eating in the green pastures. Breathtakingly beautiful. This was contrasted by the noise and closeness of the Pacific Highway out the front door. Throughout the night, our sleep was punctuated by trucks and road noise.
The bed was too soft for our liking. While a firm bed is always a preference, a softer bed is okay. This was too soft but this is always a very personal perspective. Additionally, there were some marks on the bedspread that should have been noticed by housekeeping.
In balance, the small problems are outweighed by the pleasant room. The biggest negative for me was the road noise and, sadly, it was enough to push me to decide that I wouldn't stay here again until the highway noise was managed. We had brief interactions with the Managers and found them to be nice, helpful people.
