I have stayed at Auto Lodge many times over the years and find it handy to the city centre, the coastal walkway and very close to where elderly relations live. It is starting to get a little tired now but still meets my needs except that our room this time didn't meet expectations. See below. Staff were friendly and provided a toaster so we could have breakfast but other food we had bought to share went to waste.
We were disappointed in our room at Auto Lodge as on your Booked.net site we were told that the room had a private balcony with sea views, which it did, but part of our reason for booking here was that the room had a kitchennette with a stove and microwave and the lounge area had a sofa. None of these facilities were available. As we were travelling to spend time with children and grandchildren these facilities would have been useful and we had gone prepared with food that I had intended to share with family. This was unable to happen because of lack of facilities.
We were in unit 6 to start with but work men staying in other unit were noisy and men on other side were snoring all night felt like they were in the same room as us so we asked to be moved next morning which was not a problem at all, we were moved to unit 35 which was lovely quiet own balcony so we could have a wine in the afternoon and decor was to a higher standard we would ask for that unit again next time we stay .
Price, easy parking, friendly staff, good value.
Very welcoming from the start - made a very good impression - great customer service (We got upgraded as soon as we arrived as my sister and I were travelling with my 80 year old mum). The room was very quiet, very clean and very comfortable. Thank you - I would certainly return.....
Nothing - except the restaurant food....it was fair - and I was not impressed that when my sister could not eat her main she wasnt even asked if she wanted a refund. Not good customer service....
convenient for group
rooms starting to need redecoration
Proximity to amenities, Affordability, quiet
Good price but reflected in the age and wear on the room.
The family unit was very comfortable. The rates were very affordable.
A little bit too far away from the CBD to walk.
A very comfortable place to stay. Our room was quite large, with good quality furnishings. Proximity to shops and sightseeing very good. Would certainly recommend this motel.
The hair dryer was a 1950s style, attached to a machine in the bathroom. Very little drying power.
Nice view from the room. Warm and friendly greeting from receptionist on arrival - very helpful.
It had utencils / equipment for making hot drinks but no sink to wash up in. No microwave in the room. Mattress and pillows too firm.
Friendly staff and easy book-in and check out. Nice breakfast (The only meal we had there) Great access to town and our the venue for our Business Awards evening
staff friendly they changed our room as blow dryer didnt work , exposed fires and veneer peeling of bedhead
It was centrally located and close to the main town centre. Easy to find with a good restaurant with plenty of choice on the menu.
Room was rather shabby with wallpaper peeling off. No exhaust fan in bathroom making for a very hot and steamy room. Bed mattress was heavily stained and rather unpleasent.
It was very convenient, staff very friendly and helpful, unit very comfortable.
Only one problem and I mentioned it to the staff - on the Saturday night we had very noisy neighbours, with children running up and down until after midnight, - obviously upset others as they were told in no uncertain terms to keep the noise down. Apart from that all was fine.
Location, staff friendliness, clean rooms, warm and comfortable.
Very near town. Nice quiet motel.
We were 3 friends. We had 3 bedrooms, but only 1 bathroom. Toilet was in the bathroom, which is a bit inconvenient in the morning.
