  • 4.0.Fair

    The place felt abandoned. No reception at the property. Had to drive further up the road to a partner motel. Glad I didn’t arrive late as that motels reception closed at 9:00 pm. When I did check in there was no one at reception office. Had too wander around the complex and eventually fund a house maid. Not keen on re booking there.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The room was overwhelmed by an extremely pungent scent from some perfume sticks. It was so strong it felt like my lungs were burning. I had to air out the room for two hours before being able to relax. The beds, fittings and seats are all worn - to be honest they are beyond their life and need updating. The bed is actually concaved. Cleanliness was not good with signs of previous guests visible - hair and dirty kitchen floor. All the aluminium joinery needs new seals with sound and breeze coming through. To make matters worse, the cupboard which holds an ironing board and iron had a ceiling panel missing inside it - which allows air and a breeze to push and pull the cupboard door. Compared to other places I have stayed it was disappointing. To top it off it took me hours to settle down and ultimately meant I didn’t start the next day rested. The only aspect that was ok were the walls had been recently painted. I can’t recommend this property at the moment - the staff I met though were lovely and professional, it’s just a shame the property is so tired and not what I would expect - even for the price.

  • 6.0.Good

    Close to ferry terminal. Didn’t like having to walk to another motel to get keys. No drop book on site - was told to leave keys in room. Only two towels - but three guests. Floors were sticky. Carpet needs a clean. No aircon in unit - only a heater that we didn’t feel comfortable leaving on all night. No forks.

    I emailled to change my booking, and they said it was all sorted. On the day it wasn't. The reception for this motel is actually another 2 notels away

  • 2.0.Poor

    Absolutely filthy. Mould in bathroom, stains in cups, tea towels were brown, over powering essential oils used to cover up musty smell. Stains on furniture. When I pulled back the covers to get into one of the beds there was little bits of hair through it!! Beds not even made for ‘room service’ covers just pulled up. No one on site to even complain to. Keys had been to be picked up from a motel down the road. Give this place a wide berth!!!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Started off as a less than excellent experience, having to walk down the road to another motel to pick up my key for check in. What I found in the room was well below expectations. A quick bathroom stop revealed pubic hairs on the toilet, urine on the seat and the floor, and sticky lino floors in the kitchen and bathroom. A rotten and mouldy shower door really added to the experience. At bed time I found my pillow case was very dirty with black marks on it. Slept with the pillow in a shirt to keep my face off it. Clearly couldnt call reception as this wasnt even on site. Pretty poor. I dont expect much from cheap accommodation but a clean room is a must, no matter the price point. Do not stay here.
