My consistent theme!
I think I’ve written a review on this motel before but I was there again a couple of nights ago and as I only write reviews on the very good and the “could be improved” establishments otherwise I’ll be spending more time as an amateur journalist and have to give up my ‘real” job, I felt compelled to make another mention for superlative service which is my consistent theme on what differentiates the sublime from the average.
I’d developed a cold and cough over the past few days and when I stayed at the Roma this week, it was severe and I didn’t get much sleep as I was coughing and spluttering all night. In the morning when I went to check out I mentioned this to Garry and Yvonne, the owners, and Yvonne immediately suggested a cough remedy that she recommended as when she was teaching as having a cough wasn’t conducive to standing in front of a class and coughing all over to them and this medicine was the most effective she’s ever come across.
I noted the name of the medicine and where to buy it from but then Yvonne came out and gave me a new bottle of this! Now, how many motel or hotel proprietors would do this?
Again, another superb example of superlative service!
Well done, Garry and Yvonne!
