Positive Reviews

Its a great location

Most visitors felt this location was hard to beat. You will find the beautiful city beach less than a five-minute walk, the train station is in the vicinity, and the free shuttle will take you to the array of excellent restaurants and shopping centres in the area.

Ideal for the budget consious

The room rate is pretty impressive if you are watching what you spend closely. Guests found the no frills, no fuss approach meant they had all the basics they needed without all the bells and whistles adding to the cost.

Staff always willing to assist

The front desk offers extra-long hours of operation, and are always willing and able to help guests with the queries. Whether you require a later than usual check-in, or you are new to the area, and need advice on where the nearby local attractions are, the staff will gladly be of assistance.

Negative Reviews

Old and dated

Shabby bed linen, faulty appliances, and fixtures and fittings that are in need of replacement are what guests have reported after their stay at the motel. Guests also complained about the rooms smelling like old cigarette smoke combined with air freshener spray.

Moldy bathrooms

Be careful when you move about in the bathrooms. There have been several reports of cracked tiles, sharp edges, and mould on the roof and between the tiles. Many guests chose to do a deep clean with their own cleaning materials.

Too dimly lit

The staircase is quite dim, so if you struggle to see well, particularly at night, then you should bring some extra light in the form of a torch to make sure you get back to your room without tripping on something unforeseen.
