Beds could be better

Beds could be better Guests sometimes found the beds not as restful as they would like. However, it doesn’t seem that the beds are a particular problem at this motel and any issues are more likely down to individual personal tastes.

Décor would benefit from an update

Décor would benefit from an update Guests feel that this motel is starting to show its age a little with some of the fixtures and fittings and general décor looking a little dated. A refresh of the motel would help improve the standard of accommodation.

Pool opening and closing times
