Large clean rooms in a great quiet location and near all amenities and attractions. The king bed was very comfortable and microwave was handy. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The only negative was poor wi-fi. Would stay again.

We were a party of 19 and booked 16 rooms for a couple of nights. The rooms were perfect and the quality of the breakfast was first class. The staff were the friendliest we’ve come across. Please thank Julie for her help and welcome too, she was awesome. I didn’t get the name of the young guy at the front desk but please thank him for us too as well as the young lady that served us at breakfast. They were all brilliant! If ever we’re in the area the Zig Zag Motel will be our accomodation of choice. The Baggy Blues Members Club Ltd

We stayed in a classic queen room which was spotlessly clean and a good size. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room-service breakfast was delicious! We also had a great cocktail in the bar after our late arrival and it was the perfect antidote to a long drive, all in all a great stay!

Although the room was a good size, and it was conveniently located to where I was working, and the wi-fi worked great, the room I was in was very noisy. The air conditioner vibrated loudly whenever the fan cut in. The bed was so soft and lumpy, I dont think my back will ever forgive me. Then to top that off, in the middle of having my morning shower, conditioner on my hair and soap lathered everywhere, the water cut off. The response from reception when I rang, was not the best when I asked if there was a problem with the water, "I'm just I reception I dont know." Not, " I'm so sorry, I'll find out immediately what is happening". Maybe I was just unlucky, after-all, this place was suggested by others staying there, but I doubt I'll stay there again.

Dear Tracee2014, Thank you for your recent stay with us and for taking the time to review our page. We're terribly sorry that we didn't meet your expectations on this occasion, what you have described is very out of character and we should have acted immediately. We fully agree that we should have been more proactive and provided a solution to your concern about the water issues. With your comments on our bedding - there shouldn't be any 'lumps' in the beds as they are new pillow top mattresses - commercial grade King Koil pillow top mattresses in fact. The beds are quite soft and we have so many compliments - however soft bedding is not to everyone's liking and we fully acknowledge that. Sorry it wasn't to your liking. We do hope to be given a chance in the future to accommodate you again! Kind regards, Genna Inzitari
