Everything was filthy. Shower was duct taped to the wall and the bathroom looked as though it had not been cleaned since the place was built. Sheets were not fresh and had other people's hair all through them. Sheets and duvets were stained yellow and brown, no duvet covers. Floors sticky and gritty, fan too noisy to use. Street noise...

The double room that I was told about and saw on the web was nothing like I got. The room was small, the doors onto the so called balcony wouldn't open and I took photos of the bedding which was nothing short of disgusting.

Terrible hotel! Dirty, cheap and nasty. I only had to stay here for one night, and that's the first and final time. We first booked a room without an ensuit and quickly changed to one with.

This motel was dirty, noisy and had very small rooms. No kettle in the room and ceiling fan so noisy we could not sleep. The bathroom was not clean and motel was generally in poor condition. There is a constant smell of old cooked food, looks like some of the rooms are let long term so people are living there....

Don't stay here, as you wouldn't even let your dogs sleep here. No AC no kettle, small bed and the Ceiling fan was very noisy! One bathroom to share with 10 other bedrooms ? Which also needs a total revamp and a deep clean! As we did not make this booking ourselves but booked by our in laws we had...

Absolutely disgusting! Room was dirty and hot, no air conditioning, no toilet paper and bathroom was mouldy. We walked out, and found another hotel. Would never go back and definitely would not recommend.

Good stuff: If you want to be in the centre of Newtown, then it's a great location. Bad stuff: The rooms are small and not very clean. Everything is old and run down. There's no air con. There is only 20MB of wifi available. It's noisy. You can hear the people in the rooms next to and above your room,...

Perfect for one nights stay, we arrived early and left our bags in the office while room being cleaned. Bed comfortable, slept well, great location for my night out in Newtown. I would stay again for an overnight stay. Wouldn't stay longer than one night tho. Room clean but very small and very basic.
