    Location was within 20-30mins walk to Botanical Gardens and city centre. Room was clean and tidy with room facilities adequate and onsite manager pleasant. There was off street parking available and we were able to leave our luggage for the day after check out as flights not till late afternoon.

    The room was older than expected and needed updating, particularly the kitchenette and bathroom. This did not concern us greatly as we did not expect a 4 star motel for the money we had paid. However the TV was small and did not have many channels, and was difficult to find anything decent to watch at night.

    The room was warm when we arrived.

    An alarm clock would be useful.
