    Service great. Very Clean. Comfortable. Spacious bathroom. Handy for town centre.

    View only of business site over the road.

    Shortland Court Motel was neat and tidy and provided good stop-over accommodation, rather than holiday accommodation. Provision of proper ground coffee was a nice touch and was appreciated. Nice fresh sheets and towels.

    Our real problem was the noise, and had we had known that it was on a busy road we would not have booked it. Also the upholstery on the couch and dining chairs was very grubby, and we feel that for the price, this aspect of it could have been cleaner. There is a yuk factor about sitting on a couch or a chair that is grubby and where there are unexplained stains. This could be so easily rectified with either leather or a leather mix lounge and dining chairs. An initial outlay but one that would ensure cleanliness for years to come, and would then just need a wipe over with a damp cloth. It's surprising to us just how many places we've stayed that have lounge suites that are stained and sometimes smelly, when the rest of the apartment is in good condition. For the price we would have expected a little better and would not recommend it for holiday accommodation, but for a stop-over it would be fine.

    The room was very nice and everything was well presented. The staff were very friendly and I would stay again

    The smokers that congregated outside their front doors, talking loudly late at night and early in the morning and I walked out to be greeted by a wall of smoke. I couldn't leave my front door open. Also neighbours started spa bath at 10 p.m. sounded like a tractor!
