    Owner/operators with English as a second language, therefore oral commuication difficult and specific requirements lost in translation. Units are revamped 1970's style, basic and accepatble for one/two nights. The Motel's location near Latimer Square is its best asset

    Motel is located in a walkable distance from the town centre, half an hour by car from the airport. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff OK. Parking on the yard. No restaurants nearby. Higher price than value, but OK place to stay.
