Positive Reviews

Location offers plenty of convenience

Reviewers frequently find the location of this place appealing. This is because there are bus stops close by so they can easily reach other parts of the city. Furthermore, the premises lie opposite a shopping centre that boasts dining options as well as retailers. Drivers appreciate the free parking, adding that access by road is straightforward.

A warm welcome

According to travellers, this property benefits from kind, helpful and attentive members of staff who offer great customer care and in-depth local knowledge.

Cheap and cheerful rooms are clean

The consensus among guests is that the rooms here are usually clean and tidy. Guests agree that the motel units are well equipped for self-catering because there are kitchens containing toasters, stoves, fridges and microwaves. Although the rooms are described as being quite functional, travellers prioritising affordability often explain that they get a fair amount of bang for their buck as the nightly tariff is usually competitive for the neighbourhood.

Negative Reviews

Bathrooms attract some criticism

There are reports from reviewers that the bathrooms at this property, particularly those which are shared with other guests, could be more comprehensively cleaned to address issues like patches of mould.

Nuisance noise detected

According to light sleepers, there are thin walls between some of the rooms here. This can mean noise from adjacent quarters is all too easily transferred through the walls.
