Stayed for 3 nights for business training (was booked by company).
The room was basic and clean yet small. Very small bathroom with very little room for personal effects on the bathroom basin. There was also no drapery/blinds on the large clear glass bathroom window, so it was a bit unnerving to look out the window at the traffic while showering. Thank goodness I was on the third floor!
I ate in the restaurant for the first 2 nights as I was exhausted, had the flu and didn't want to venture into the cold to go elsewhere. Although I wasn't paying for any of it, I thought the meals were overpriced for the quality and quantity, and not very adventurous. The meals sounded tasty on the menu but were very disappointing. The rice served with my meal was served in a cup shape but was so hard I wondered if they had forgotten to cook it. I had to cut through it with my knife. Although not a huge eater, I went to bed still slightly hungry (even with the flu!!). The table service was great on the first night but on the second night was very poor (different waiters). I ordered a glass of wine with my meal and it was very slow to arrive. I ordered another glass of wine at the end of my meal and waited over half an hour for it. I eventually caught the waiter's eye and he remembered to bring it to me! The gentleman at the table next to mine got sick of waiting for the drink he'd ordered so walked up and asked for his bill and left.
On the 3rd night I visited a busy local restaurant Shine Cafe Bar & Lounge and ate the best meal I've had for years (I'm still talking about it!). The motel is conveniently close to great restaurants, bars and shopping centres.
