9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fun, retro motel that was large enough to sleep our little family of four. It was retro in the best sense of the word where someone has obviously had a lot of fun sourcing retro furnishings. But still with nice sheets and towels and comfortable beds (unlike others i have stayed where absolutely nothing has been upgraded in the last 30 years).
Cons: A TV in the bedroom would have been nice for after the toddler and baby had gone to bed in the lounge (this is the first time I have understood why anyone would want a TV while on holiday!).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great to see some cool retro styling going on to make the place feel warm. I spend 1x week a month in 'lifeless box' hotels around the world so this one was a welcome relief!! The old clock radio and lazyboy chairs were my favorites.
