The only positive aspect of this motel was its convenience to the motorway. Reception was not manned and required a cell phone call to get any service, on one occasion having to wake the ‘owner’ at 9.30 am. Only three towels provided for 6 guests. Three bedroom unit is in dire need of renovation but even worse was the overall level of uncleanliness with mould on inside window sIlls, dirty cotton buds on lounge carpet, rock solid salt in the shaker, a flat smoke alarm battery that beeped continuously till we took it out and one alarm missing, a battery missing from TV remote, a glass coffee table that had been wiped down leaving streaks and hasn’t seen glass cleaner in ages, lots of paint work needs attention especially in bathroom and toilet and the outside deck is covered in green algae. Overall a VERY tired motel that need major makeover and an owner that cares. Can not recommend it.

The apartment was quite damp with some mould. I think being a bigger three bedroom unit it doesn’t get used a lot and had been shut up. Lots of condensation on the windows when we arrived and smelt quite musty.

This is a very tired property, the room was noisy and stuffy as there was no airconditioning and the fan an old model which even on low setting was too loud for in room comfort. The redeeming factor was that the room was clean. I would give it a 2 star rating as it didnt match the hype and and was overpriced for what it delivered.

A comfortable bed. Dishwasher full of dirty dishes from previous people. Shower was dirty black mould . The room we booked had someone else in it a lot of confusion. Couldn’t supply a receipt.

The lady at the desk was lovely and helpful. Pool was nice and was clean. The interior though needs work with a hole in a door, cupboards that stick etc. The pool was very pleasant though.

Overpowering odour coming from the outside rubbish bins under a car port next to the childrens play groud, dead animal ? .Clothing from previous quests still in the draws. Kitchen floor to sticky to walk on, top of the microwave and bathroom tiles could do with being cleaned and not to mention the rubbish blowing about the yard. Walked out and sort alternative accommodation after only being there an hour.
