    Sorry you had a disappointing stay, we are struggling from time to time as the redevelopment is imminent but no excuse for leaving goods in the reception for a couple of days. We usually try to move around at breakfast and give touring advice.

    I was browsing through Ki holiday accommadation looking to see what had changed since we lived there. I was really pleased to see the motel was coming back to being a good holiday accommadation. We owned it 1994. For 4 years we like to think we ran a good place. Handy for everywhere outdated but managers make up for that. Pool. We had a restuarant. Good luck to new managers It deserves it
