Good for the price

Cheerful staff, nice pool, good walk to city
It's an ageing motel but good value for money. 15 minute walk to town and not a difficult walk. It would be great if they replaced the pillows as they are quite worn out and a good pillow really makes for a good night's sleep.

Don't waste your money on this one

Location only
We arrived very late only to be woken around 7am by the hotel dryer. Our room was beside the laundry. This is a very unloved hotel needing a complete renovation of the room, bathroom and all furniture. No decor matched and everything was damaged or faulty. We have stayed at better backpackers accommodation. Do yourself a favour and pay a little more elsewhere.

The room smelt of stale cigarettes,bedside shelf w
Was disappointed, The room stunk of stale cigarettes,the bed had sand or crumbs in it,the bedside shelf was dirty and had ants over it there were ants in the bed,the bed moved every time you sat on it,the floor was gritty,my suitcase and cloths in it stunk of stale cigarettes and the noise from other patrons late at night and at 5.30am was in infuriating. Wont ever stay again and want be recommending it to others. The pictures of the rooms on the advertisement is false advertising I would never had booked otherwise😠👎

Worst accommodation i have ever stayed in worldwide. Had to get refund on second night as i was not going to stay any longer. This unsafe filthpit should be legally shutdown.

Good Stay

The location was great. It is within walking distance of City Centre. Quiet place with a wonderful lagoon type pool.
I enjoyed my stay. Although my rooms was a bit dated it was clean and well stocked. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was good, I would stay there again.

Price, location and micrwave in the room
For the price it was what could be expected. A bit more security maintenace of my room would have made my stay better. The sliding "pool view" door only locked by a chain latch. Also there is not enough off street parking available.
