We stayed in a studio suited our needs, probably better for a short stay, we stayed 4 nights and would have liked a couple of drawers as I like to unpack. Having said that would definitely stay again, in fact tried to book for another weekend but fully booked. Very clean, a chair would have been nice but given the...

The place was old and needed some mataniance and a lick of paint. The location was terrible as I was quite a distance to nice cafes etc. Wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend to anyone else either. You definitely get what you pay for

Check in was quick room No 4 was clean, bed comfortable, motel owner helpful, location is good to state highway No 1 & to the city centre. Although next to a major road, the room was quiet. We would easly stay again. Did not use the pool, but it was very popular with other motel guests.

Was clean but needs updating. Bed could have done with a new mattress as the one I had was old and hard and probably past its use by date. I noticed that the cupboards in bathroom did not meet and a few stains in carpet and it just looked old and tired Hosts were awesome and friendly Centrally located

They say a picture tells a thousand words, but in this case, the pictures didn't tell the full story. While the unit was clean, apart from some stains on the carpet, it was very dated in its decor and quite inconvenient. There were no easy chairs and to watch the television one had to sit (or lie) on the beds....

We stayed here with two young children and enjoyed it. There is a large downstairs area with functional kitchen and big dining room table. Two rooms upstairs with comfy clean beds. Nice staff, shared guest laundry. Looks like the place was recently refurbished but they need to clean the walls a bit. Other than the walls everything else was very...

Having a small family to consider, we really think about where we stay. The hosts were very polite and lovely with great customer services. The room itself was out dated with a 90s nostalgia and semi clean. The pool was unusable as it had a malfunction and was waiting on a part to fix the problem. All and all we...

Facilities extremely poor. Smelly dirty room which hadn't even been cleaned and with a bath which didn't even work - offered to move us after we had totally unpacked knowing that we wouldn't - no discount offered. Old chewing gum stuck to carpet under the beds in lounge and bedroom. Owner had the audacity to falsely accuse us of damaging...

This Guest checked in on the 12th December 2015 and stayed for 1 night. On check out did not tell us about the broken coffee table or the wallpaper that was scratched off into a circular shape and left. We contacted the guest about this but the guest insisted the wallpaper damage was not their doing and told us the...

I stayed for 2 nights in March for work as where I normally stay didn't have 2 nights available. I have stayed at Aquarius Motor Inn many years ago and knew it may be a little dated in some aspects now. That said I was more than happy with my room that was clean and had everything I needed, lounge...
