This was our last hotel of our holiday...and was ok. Our unit had an old leather sofa in it which wasn't comfortable (others had new fabric ones - we could see in when rooms being cleaned). Rooms getting tired with marks on walls but they are quite sound proof in the bedrooms. Location is a walk into town but really...

The room 22C was very dirty, the toilet door lock was faulty. A big problem when there was 5 people staying.All kitchen pots, pans etc were dirty, quite disgusting. The taps leaked to the spa pool. Not a good experience.

We had a great experiences at RotoVegas, our bus arrived very early in the morning and Phil went above and beyond to make sure we didn't have to wait all day to get into our unit so we could have a sleep! We also left a charger behind which he managed to get back to us the next day. The...

Just stayed here for 2 nights in the 2 bed suite. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of space for us all. 2 bathrooms which was great. Good hot showers and comfy beds. The cooking facilities were great with more pots and pans that you could possibly use. The room had a spa pool which the kids...

Hotel was very easy to find on way into town. Great location. Across from supermarket and close to tourist attractions. Very friendly and helpful staff. Parking on site easy. Stayed in queen studio and had great facilities in room for cooking. Room was clean and just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend this place!

Clean and tidy with really good kitchen and bathroom compared to other places we've stayed at. Our unit was upstairs at front so a bit of road noise but great value all the same. Close to town, friendly staff. Definitely will stay again

Stayed here last night and the rooms are well appointed and very large. The grounds are lovely and the playground very nice. Unfortunately we did have 2 things wrong with our room...no air-conditioning or even a pedestal fan (it was hot)...secondly there was a constant beeping all night...I looked to try and find it's origin but couldn't...after calling the motel...

This hotel was a nice surprise. When we booked this stay we wanted something central, comfortable and with a touch of pampering and this hotel didn’t disappoint. The 70s wallpaper and colour-schemes were funny and quirky. The room was spacious and the private spa was just the pampering we were looking for. We had a lot of rain the days...

It would have been nice to be reminded about their Spa etc on arrival as we over looked this. The fridge door was missing the component that held the milk/bottles etc. The kitchen cupboards had an unpleasant damp smell. The shower soap dispenser didn't work, the single bed was very soft/bouncy, noise from the main road was disturbing (ask for...
