The motel is well located on Riccation road and easy access in to the city, however as such it is very noisy! there is a cornershop across the road, which sell's essentials, and its a 15/20 min stroll down to Hagley Park, which takes you past a number of restaurants and a shopping mall enroute.
The unit was a two bedroomed 1st floor, apartment with a small kitchen, the bathroom was adequate, but dated with blistered and crumbling plaster work evident on the corner of the bath. i suspect any one with any mobility issues would find it a stuggle to climb into bath as the shower is over the bath, and any one over 5'8'' has to bend over to wet/was their hair.........
The bed linen was old, and slightly discoloured.........im not a fan of bedspreads as these never get taken off and washed..........the one on my bed was grubby and stained.....not nice!
The furniture was dated, but functional. ome of the window catches are broken, so it proved difficult to secure the windows.
I felt the cost of staying here was on the expensive side for what was included...which was the room, tea and coffee was available in the room in recylced jars, with no clue as to how old they were! complementory milk is offered/ provided which is a nice touch. Breakfast is available as an extra.
