Very disappointed, the room we had smelt musty, had mould in the shower and bathroom. Old bathroom, old taps which drip constantly. The beds were extremely old, and no support in the sagging mattresses. The bedding was old. Toilet was painted! No room service each day. Nothing close by, except other motels. Desperately needs remodelling, and new beds etc. We... More

Stayed here so that we were close to the Interislander ferry for the 9 am sailing . Ideal stopover as only 15 minutes away. The manager did give us the advice to leave early to avoid any holdups which was much appreciated and advice would took. The downside was it was a little out of town when we required a... More

It was clean, the bedding modern and the flat screen TV was a good size for the room but that's where the good points end. Would love to give this a makeover and I'm full of ideas that I won't bore you with them here! But, bed was too small, lighting terrible and bathroom too cramped for starters. Place generally...

This motel is dated but very clean and tidy both inside and out. Reception was friendly and efficient. It was warm, the bed was comfortable and the towels absorbent. Water pressure in the shower was excellent! We also appreciated being given a container of milk instead of that awful longlife stuff! Lighting could be improved (typical of most motels) as... More

OK motel for 1 quick night stay over .Bit more care needed when cleaning. (behind doors) : The area is hard to find so do your home work. People very polite though language barrier requires patience from clients

We were fortunate(judging from the other unpleasant reviews) that we did not encounter any problems whilst we were staying in this Motel. The owners were friendly and helpful although they should brush up on their spoken English. They have just taken over and are in the process of updating some facilities. Of utmost importance is the laundry which really needs... More
