This is a good old fashioned motel, located on the Bealey Ave strip. Very easy to find.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and allowed us to check-out a little late, which was very kind.
We booked a two-bedroom unit that sleeps four.
It was a well-equipped room. Everything we needed in the kitchen, a good sizeable bathroom, an extra heater. Lots of spare blankets and pillows. And there was free wifi, which while the allowance seemed small, I’m sure the staff would have given us more if we’d asked. Also, it had a dining table that we could all sit around for meals. The room was relatively quiet, despite being right next to a main road.
However, it was a very small space. Beds for 4, but only enough lounge seating for 2. The others needed to perch on uncomfortable plastic chairs. Also in the bathrooms there were only enough 2 hooks for towels.
There were hardly any power points for laptops or phone chargers. In fact, in the kitchen, you could only plug in 2 of the 3 appliances (microwave, toaster, kettle) at one time.
Despite the negatives, it was a pleasant stay. The staff were nice, the room was well equipped and we got a good sleep.
