          Spacious unit. Lounge dated - could do with upgrade of saggy couch and table and plastic chairs, Easy chair(s) would be nice. Free WiFi and Sky - higher wattage light bulbs for reading, no instructions for using telephone. Clean bed linen, comfortable bed. No hairdryer. Shower old but hot and reliable, bath a bonus. Satisfactory and staff helpful.

          Good location but below standard facilities”

          Right on the bus route, near the mall and pricing good.

          The heating of the motel was most inadequate. One small convection did not have big enough output to heat the lounge let alone the whole motel unit. The weather was much cooler and it was very hard to get the unit warm. The beds were very good and had electric blankets. Bathroom and kitchen facilities were very basic. The internet broke down for part of a day but fortunately they gave me access via their office network. I still go and asked again to be given a password back to the main guest network.
