Booked for 3 nights with a group of 28 friends, took the money then double booked room every night. Got offered fold out bed, & a bed in spa suite with terrible springs. Check your bookings- he refused any responsibility for double dipping. Lucky we had good mates who helped us out

Hi Kerry O We are sorry that you did not have a good experience. We also had a very hard time when your group was with us. Your tour group booked 11 rooms for 28 guests with the intention that guests would be sharing. We provided what was requested and paid for. We actually supplied an extra two rooms that were not paid for. I would suggest your displeasure is more fairly shared with the managers of your tour. Not us who were provided what was requested and more

Was quite surprised of the space we had for the price we paid. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need too. It was conveniently located, spotlessly cleaned... I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Motel has classic decor but it was very well kept and spotlessly clean. Ample supply of plug-in heaters. Shower was okay. A few minutes drive out of the town centre. Offered a bottle of fresh milk on check in, much better than UHT.

We stayed here for a party at the ascot. Great location, very short walk. Good price. Reception staff very friendly and easy check in/check out. Even got a free upgrade. Room appeared to be very recently renovated, and contained everything you could possibly need. No little detail was forgotten! Bed and couch were super comfortable. Plenty of extra blankets and pillows, though the heating was perfect and didn’t really need more blankets. Shower was beautiful, great water pressure. Plenty of room to move in bathroom. Would definitely stay again!!
