The rooms were quite the surprise. Upon walking up to the building it looked old and tired, but the rooms were a real surprise. Freshly updated bedroom and ensuite. Clean and comfortable. The only down side was we were up the front of the property and the restaurant next door was noisy when cleaning and shutting for the night. Would definitely stay here again.

6/10 Good

Nice basic property. Great location right in the centre of town. Lots of free parking. Rooms are very basic and small but everything worked, beds were comfortable and the bathroom had been renovated. The hot water system is very wasteful in that it takes at least 5 minutes of running the water to finally get hot water - what a waste!!! Note that the rooms are on the second floor and there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue for you, take note.

8/10 Very good

It’s def a motel - easy to check in and out. It’s something you don’t book if you want a bed with a view. The room was a great size, basic but good amenities, tv that has Netflix was nice and the staff was very friendly. The bathroom could be cleaner- it smelled slightly of urine and the toilet seat was stained with urine when we entered the room.
