Wow, never again will we grace this place. We were 3 kids and 2 adults, hard to find accommodation for this configuration, wish we had of looked harder. In pulling in the pool had brown filth all through it, no swinging in there for the kids. The room, very old couch, light coloured, completely stained, god knows what it was,...

I had read the reviews on this motel and to be honest I didn't plan on staying at this place but I'm glad I did. Its was one of the only places left when we arrived so options were limited. It was close to Hastings and had everything we needed. Basic but very adequate, extremely clean and friendly staff. Free...

We had a ground floor unit which had the bare essentials but seems to have had no loving care for many years. There is nowhere to hang clothes. But the beds are comfortable, there is a TV and some kitchen facilities. There is a small swimming pool which we didn't use, but it seems OK. The property is used to...

Furniture is well worn. Its tidy but in desprate need of some investment to up date and ensure things like drainage is in working order as shower doesn't drain properly. I know motel prices increase during peek times but there is a point where it just becomes price gouging and results in people feeling absolutely taken advantage of. Considering price...

Room basically OK. Bed comfortable, quiet fan and fridge, nice crockery and clean surfaces. Let down by a filthy old shower, with little water pressure, no where to put soap or shampoo and dangerous for those with sight difficulties or elderly with two floor levels in and out of shower. Filthy shower curtain. No coat hangers or anywhere comfortable to...

We were looking for somewhere cheap - but not something below standards. We paid for 2 nights but wish we didn't. The room was just tiny - the bed felt like it was from 100 years ago. Woke up with aching body every morning. I opted for the floor through out the stay to see which one was comfortable. The...
