While the service was very friendly and the room clean - I was disappointed and will not return. To start with, this motel really is a concrete jungle - not a tree or shrub in site. all around is cement and car parks. The 'pool' is very small and located right in the middle of the carpark. While there, a young child was swimming and there was a big group of people sitting in the car park drinking beers and smoking while they supervised. It was actually really intimidating walking past all of these people to get to my room (and annoying as I needed to wait for some of them to move so I could park my car).
The website refers to a restaurant but this it does not say it is only open Monday-Thursday. So, while I was there - no room service was available and the restaurant was closed. I did go next door to the supermarket and purchased a few things and had to go back and get plastic plates and cutlery as the room did not have any at all. I appreciate it was not self catering but if there is no restaurant open, it would be nice to at least have a plate and butter knife to make a sandwich.
The TV reception was poor and I could not watch any Pay TV at all. Sorry but this place was just not good enough! less
