It is unfortunate that your booking could not be changed through your OTA for your booking on 7/9/2018. We contacted you as a matter of courtesy when you did not arrive.

Easy and friendly book in. Overnight stay only. We chose a standard room rather than refurbished room. It was a little dated but clean, comfortable and quiet . All that we required for a good nights stay.

We stayed for a long weekend in the 2 bedroom unrenovated apartment. Easy to book & no deposit required. The room was as described and very clean. Centrally located. Wifi was intermittent.Thank you, I would stay again.

Response from Steve - Marilyn C, Manager at Plainsman MotelResponded 16 May 2018

Thank you for your review. The apartment, although unrenovated, does offer more space and laundry and kitchen facilities. With the larger fridge and cooking facilities it is popular with families staying for extended periods. We hope to see you again. Regards, Steve & Marilyn
