The hotel is well located and walking distance away from interesting attractions. We had a spacious unit that was clean and comfortable but very, very simple for the price, almost underequipped. An overhaul is really needed

The hotel has an outdoor climatized pool and a small but interesting indoor thermal pool, I tried both of them and they were clean, but the thermal one could really needs an overhaul too.

Can't really recommend for the price.

Landed in the evening to friendly receptionist. The room is basic but very big which as good, and we got full use of the 3 different pool areas. Only a shirt walk into town which was good. Added bonus of getting a good nights sleep due their being no noise.

I can't vouch for the rooms in the main part of the motel, which looked revamped and nicer. But our family of 6 was given the "house" which neighbors the main building, and although it looks quaint from the outside, the interior was quite poor. Old and cheap bathroom and kitchen; carpeting and bedding that needs a complete overhaul. If it was a bargain, I wouldn't have minded, but the nightly rate was not cheap. The staff seemed friendly at check in, but no interactions with them thereafter. In the morning, we got out of there as early as possible, eager to get to our next destination and shower off the ick factor. (We didn't bother dipping in the pools either, as they were closer to large bathtubs that did not look particularly sanitary.)

Room tip: Avoid the "house"

We were given a one-bedroom unit which was very spacious. This motel seems dated but absolutely no issues with cleanliness and amenities. There is a laundry room for the guests and a thermal pool. Motel is easy to find for tour bus pick-ups and drop-offs. It is next to the government gardens and a few steps away from a lovely cafe. It is quiet as it is away from the main road (about 200 meters) and there is free parking. Check-in was extremely efficient and the proprietors were friendly and happy to give us directions and answer our questions. We had comfortable beds and a relaxing stay.

There are no lifts so, request for a ground floor unit if you have mobility issues.

This hotel stay have a friendly and efficient check in. Room was spacious. Kitchenette was clean and basic but well supplied with utensils. It is also walking distance to all the town attractions. The down side - spider webs above light fittings, I would never use the laundry area based on the state of the old machine, thermal
pool area, while a novelty, was not an inviting area at all. This is not an expensive place to stay, so weighing everything up - I would stay here again if ever needed.
