    Friendly staff, very welcoming. Comfortable bed. Warm.

    More attention could be paid to cleaning - bathroom in particular. I found the crockery and glasses being in such a high cupboard didn't work for me - I had to use one of the dining chairs to be able to get anythingout to use.

    Due to the recent earthquake and subsequent damage to the city, this motel offers comfortable accommodation within walking distance of several restaurants. As so much of the city is closed, it is difficult to find places to dine.

    We experienced a 5.3 afterhsock, would suggest a ground floor unit rather than an upstairs one.
