Positive Reviews

Thoughtful and friendly staff

Guests feel that this is a very caring motel. All management and staff are described as being very friendly and helpful. Again and again, visitors applaud the high level of service they receive from the entire team here.

Great location

Reviews repeatedly state how happy travellers are with this property's location. The city centre is only a short walk away, and it offers lots of grocery stores for self-caterers and plenty of restaurants too.

Very clean with great facilities

Guests like the modern and well-presented rooms, along with the fact that the place is spotlessly clean throughout. Additionally, guests say that the showers are impressive, and the spa tubs offer unrivalled relaxation. Visitors also report that the beds are exceptionally comfortable.

Negative Reviews

Staying here is quite expensive

Many guests feel that the price is a little on the high side for staying at the establishment. Travellers say they would like to see a more affordable rate for the rooms on offer here.

Lacking a lift and AC

Guests are not impressed that the motel lacks a lift to the floors above ground level. This amenity is something travellers say would make their experience more convenient. Visitors are also critical of the fact that the rooms do not have air conditioning. This causes many to have to open their windows and be subject to noises from the surrounding area.
