Not my first choice.
Very basic hotel, reasonably clean but rather worn. The shower fluctuated warm / cold. No breakfast available so off to McDonalds 5 mins away by car. On a positive note there is on site car parking.

Welcome to the Bates Motel
It’s all rather creepy. You arrive in a minuscule car park, walk into the reception to be greeted by a deserted bar and an equally deserted reception. Dial 200 to speak to someone who doesn’t seem to have any of my details and five minutes later she stumbled in from the house across the car park. All very odd. The stairwell harks back to the heady days of an 80’s porn set and the lights eventually switch on as you ascend into darkness. The room is okay. Genuinely quite comfortable apart from the desk chair. That isn’t. Join the WiFi and experience the incredible 0.3mb ‘broadband’ and give up. I put some milk in the fridge and genuinely it froze solid overnight. May need a little attention? The bed was okay and the location quite quiet. I went out for a bit and when I came back and parked my car just outside under a tree. Big mistake. It seems that tree is home to the world championship bird mess extravaganza and my car in the morning had changed from white to a more Guano brown. It may never recover. The shower was a slight dribble of scalding water. Lovely. In the morning I dropped off my key and legged it. I won’t be going back. It’s quite comfy to be honest but far, far creepier than it should be.
