Stayed here for 1 night, that was enough. If you were never in the room it was OK but the two queen room was tiny. The old TV was on a platform hanging over the foot of one of the beds. There was a tiny fridge, smallest one I’ve ever seen (sitting on a stool), with small microwave and coffee maker crowded onto a small desk. The air con was very loud. There was a dark entranceway with an old lock in the door that felt that it could be easily jimmied open. We did not feel safe so left luggage in front of the door. Night lights were wobbly and I wasn’t sure if I should turn them on and not get electrocuted, one of them was unplugged so had to move the bed to plug it in again. Dull wood paneling and old looking quilt. Is essence the room looked right out of the 50’s.
I should have thought more about the images on their website that the comments on Tripadvisor, the pictures looked like a tacky old motel, and it is. I can’t understand all the positive reviews here.
The positives: The bathroom had been updated, new flooring, shower, toilet, and sink they had even painted in there, but: towel rack was over top of the toilet and the way the shower was situated you had to step out to get a towel, there was no counter/sink space at all, there could have been a small shelf beside on the wall beside the sink. Having said that if they had done ¼ of the work is the main room that they did in the bathroom it would be a great improvement.
It was also quite out of the way from town and any amenities in a residential area, you had to drive to get anywhere.
