our room was perfect... but the only disappointment for us was that we were looking at a brick wall on the ground floor. plus the walls are thin. crying baby 2 rooms away from us kept us awake. all in all though we found the room to be very comfy and the staff and meal where great.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, enjoying the food in the hotel restaurant each night. It is certainly a popular place, and the food is well prepared and well priced, with a good menu selection. Parking around the rooms is a bit tight, and we had to use the "overflow" area one night. Our rooms were clean and...

Our family stayed at this hotel for 5 days and found it very good. It's handy for the Tamar valley and only a few minutes drive from the city centre. The rooms were clean, although a bit dated, but comfortable. Our room was serviced each day. We tried the meals in the restaurant 3 nights, they were very good and...

Reception is in the RSL club across the road. Weird, isn't it? Reserved parking exists if they aren't too busy at the RSL club when everyone parks at the "hotel" parking and no one enforces it. Cleanness of the rooms is questionable, as i washed the toilet before i used it- it did not look overly clean to me. This...

We stayed in a family room for 1 night. Despite the noise and smoking fume from the neighbouring room, the accommodation was pleasant in that many facilities are provided. Electric blankets on the single beds were great for the cold night and there was also sufficient space in the room for a comfortable and homey feel. Although there were a...

Basic motel with basic amenities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. You could hear the traffic from the motel room, however it was not overbearing. Rooms were clean and tidy, with the ensuite fresh. Meals were of good value.
