    I loved the friendly staff and clean facilities I thought the double bed was quite uncomfortable and it was very noisy until late, think someone was cleaning very late at night as well

    We enjoyed our time at The Black Sheep, close to town, friendly staff and very good amenities. The family room was very good and having the little bar fridge in the room was awesome. A bit bummed we missed out on the spa though but that was us just getting back too late.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Creaking floor boards all around the room, slamming doors, dorm rooms around double rooms and lots of teenagers around didn't help our stay at this property. I wouldn't recommend it to people needing a quiet family/couple stay at this place.

    Meh...

    The advertised shower only in the room is false. They should have clearly indicated that they only have shared a Shower. Also, this is the first backpacker or motel i went to that required the guest to return the sheets and pillow cases at thereception upon checkout. The room was not soundproof at all - this is another false advert. But it was clean though. We also did not get any toiletries - it was supposed to be provided as per advertised.
