Terrific value option for accommodation near to city centre. I booked a budget studio and it was really clean and tidy with new carpet. The unit I selected was near the road so it was a little noisy but the price reflected that and at 120 bucks in peak season it was a bargain. I

Good afternoon Yna, We observed and recorded on our CCTV cameras your actions and behavior that lead us to conclude that you had every intention to have someone stay with you without paying, in a room that was already at its maximum legal occupancy limit. We take great care to ensure the safety and security of our guests, their possessions and the complex, so when we discovered an unfamiliar and unregistered person on the property, after hours, with your room key in her hand and about to enter your room it was therefore necessary for us to restate our terms and conditions to you. Regards Richard

Hi Abby, We agree it was a very disappointing and unsatisfactory result for both parties. We took great care to ensure you were well informed of our policies and you signed our Terms and Conditions accepting them. Unfortunately, when you chose to allow your friends, who were not registered or paid up guests, after hours access into our complex and room to spend the night and use our facilities for free, we had no option but to invoke our stated policy. Apparently that was a risk you were prepared to take and as you can understand, it is challenging for us to be upbeat when we discover people being dishonest with us. Regards Admirals Motor Inn

The motel was very clean and well presented, our room was on the side where there was road noise but not too bad. The reception was welcoming and helpful. Plenty of room. Would stay again, it's under reasonably new management so feel they are doing it right .

We stayed in an upstairs studio and were very happy with it. The bed is comfy, shower is good and it was a bonus having a separate kitchenette. We were pleased to have nice thick drapes to block out the complex security lighting. Location is great, being a close walk to the

"Don't book a room on the road front!"
"WE have had rooms in various areas and all were good."
"Rooms away from road will be quite overlooking the park nicest"
