4/10 Fair

Reception only staffed for very limited hours, so an early departure not possible. Unit was run down and tatty with non-working lights, kettle unsafe as it would not switch off when boiling. Overall very disappointing.

6/10 Good

Very basic, dated motel unit. Minimal cooking facilities (microwave and toaster) and, no sink. More like a hotel room. Small fan heater and electric blanket did not go on one side.

A SOLID Stay at The Furlong Motel
We were passing and stopped here overnight. Did not know town and just picked this Motel. So glad that we did. Some rooms have been updated \ upgraded and we stayed in #18 which had been. It was comfortable, quiet and modern feeling. Bathroom was spacious. A Gull service station is right by... very convenient. We would stay here again if ever passing in the area. If you desire a Roast meal do go to Yummy's, a 5 minute drive away in town.
