2/10 Poor

River Motel
Spacious but barren accomodation. Not properly cleaned when we arrived, including plates and dishes still with residue of previous use. Only 1 mug for drinks and when we asked for another it was somewhat reluctantly given with a distinct vibe given out that we must have broken one (we hadnt). On the third day of our stay the toilet role was running low so my wife asked for another one to see us through the final day. Request refused! Bizarre!

10/10 Exceptional

Value for money was excellent. The room had recently been painted etc. however the only negative would be the bathroom floor really needed a good scrub with a good cleaner . It was very ,very dirty. Easily fixed and it would get a 10 / 10 for a pleasant stay . Would be great with kids as parks with play areas etc. just across the road.
