Negative Reviews

Own transport would be beneficial

Although guests appreciate the nearby shopping facilities, they do also note that the location of this motel means that having your own transport would be beneficial. Beyond a shopping centre, there is little of interest in the immediate area.

Lack of designated smoking areas

A number of past guests have suggested that this motel would benefit from introducing designated smoking areas. Non-smokers have found that the smell of smoke has easily entered their room thanks to people smoking nearby.

Some maintenance issues in rooms

While the rooms here are typically described as clean and spacious, they don't escape criticism entirely. Guests have encountered a fair amount of issues caused by improper maintenance. These problems have included loose fixtures in the bathrooms and poorly performing air-conditioning units.
