The good reviews don’t match our experience unfortunately. I don’t mind outdated (and it is), as long as it’s clean. Spacious and well laid out but comes with some big buts......there was no soap provided to wash your hands, crumbs in the fridge, bedroom window latch was held together with toilet paper, the bathroom window latch was broken and wouldn’t close so there were sandflies everywhere. The shower pressure was non existent. Hate to have to give such a poor review as this place has way more potential. As it is, it’s a no from me.

That's my apartment in the picture! No 2. Great place, plenty of room, like a little flat instead of a microscopic box with an ensuite in the corner. Excellent kitchen and facilities. Lovely pool and garden area. Was quiet and secure. Kind of quaint really, not this year's model but that's fine by me. Enjoyed my stay.

My sister's and I chose this motel for it's location to the hospital. Peter was very accommodating regarding nights stayed, as we were not sure how long we would need to be there. The motel is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.
