1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is probably the worst Motel which I have stayed at. The room was clean, but very unkept and old. The pool was mossy on the edges and very uninviting. The only thing going for it was the bed was comfy.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We enjoyed the quiet, clean room. The staff were extra helpful and the location is excellent, on one side it’s a short walk to the esplanade, on the other side a scenic short stroll to The Wharf.
