Good Value

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Aug 2018
Had unit 8, a one bedroom unit, was lovely and clean, had everything we needed, slightly larger coffee cups would have been nice, but Im used to larger mugs. Unit was quite warm with heater going but heater slightly noisy but room stayed warm with heater turned off. Water pressure in shower was lacking for washing long hair but enough for a simple wash. Room was a little noisy with road noise, but we live rural so not used to SH1 traffic. Very basic TV channels.

We stayed here for three nights from 25th July in the King Bed Room. The property has been refurbished to a high standard and the rooms are amazing. We arrived late at night and the heater had been put on in our room, as it was pretty cold outside, so it was lovely to walk into. Our unit was spacious, modern and very, very clean. Walking distance to a lovely Thai Restaurant down the road and going into town is walkable if you are keen. Would highly recommend this property to anyone - good rooms and the nightly rate is very good.

Room tip: All rooms are on one level, so no stairs to have to cope with.

We stayed for one night last week in a family apartment, and found the room to be a good size with 3 separate sleeping areas, and very comfy beds.

A good location and close to the center of town, and easy to find.

We wouldn't recommend the Chinese takeaways across the road, it wasn't very good.

Stayed 2 nights, lovely and clean. Very comfortable bed. Motel slightly out of town but not too far. Great Thai restaurant within walking distance. Free DVD hire in office if you want a quiet night in. Can hear a bit of road noise but nothing too annoying, we stayed in room 6 so being further back from road would help. Nice kitchenette with everything needed.
