2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
It appears that the property - at least the motel section where we stayed - is being run into the ground. If it was 3 star it isn't now. It needs TLC. The bed was comfy, though hard, and the TV was large screen. But the bathroom had a shower curtain with mould along the bottom and there were dead things in the light fitting. The room itself was cheaply furnished and showing its age. Outside, the pool was empty, with a large dank puddle and 3 loungers (why?) in it. The main building foyer was gloomy - too little lighting. Breakfast was included - basic cereal, toast and fruit. Outside were beautiful plants - made of plastic; not a good look. So, overall the visit was disappointing, though not uncomfortable.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
This place was in an excellent location, only 5 minute walk to shopping centre and restaurantrs. The rooms were large enough. Only complaints I had were that the people in the next room were easily heard and the bed was too hard. Other than that it was fine, the staff were excellent and I'd stay again
