Clean with very kind gentle owners

Review of Legends Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Dec 2018
This was the second time we have stayed here. Owners are very gentle and kind and nothing is a problem. Older motel so rooms are basic but warm, clean, quite and comfortable. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping mall across the road at the traffic lights which are 50 metres from motel driveway.and other shops including the main shopping centre.
Date of stay: November 2018
Room Tip: Ask for ground floor if stairs are a problem for you.

This motel is great. It’s basic and possibly a little dated but that fades into insignificance when you appreciate the cleanliness and attention to detail from the staff. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The location couldn’t be better and within walking distance from restaurants, supermarkets and the Square. No hesitation in highly recommending this motel.

We have stayed at the Legends Motel twice and can't fault it for comfortable and affordable accommodation. Each unit has a spa bath and recliner armchairs for that extra comfort and while the kitchenette does not have a sink the owner provides a plastic bin for dirty dishes. One small problem last time we stayed was that there was a glitch with the breakfast service, but the owner directed us 200m down the street to the Hotel Coachman where we enjoyed breakfast in La Patio Cafe.

Would definitely stay here again.
The facilities at Legends were very clean and tidy. Very friendly and informative staff. The spa bath was great. The location is super handy to the city. There was not much to fault here.

I was a little concerned about this motel as it was in the cheaper price range, but needed a booking for a fairly large group of people at a reasonable price. Wow! what a surprise. This place is close to restaurants and shopping, and is spotlessly clean, with everything you could wish for, including lounge chairs, great sized bathroom with spa bath, Sky TV. You don’t even have to wash your own dishes, a bin with a lid on is in every room for you to put your dirty dishes in. I would recommend this motel to anyone, and the staff are friendly and helpful as well.

Have to shoot down to Palmerton North on short notice; I made a booking on line. This motel was in the very cheap range but I thought hey I will be arriving late and just needed a place to sleep. All the way from Hamilton I worried what the place would be like and as I was arriving late would they even still be open (Expected arrival 10pm.

On arrival I was surprised, a fairly new motel, clean and tidy, the reception was still open and a vary nice man welcomed me, signed me in and told me all the services etc and off I went to the room. The room was perfect, clean, Spa bath, Sky decoder in the room and all the mode con’s. I would highly recommend this place to anyone
