Property can improve more in cleanliness. Not really close to town centre, needed to walk about 10-15 mins to get there. Otherwise, checking in is very easy and a very quiet area.

The Dorothy is a quaint motel in a quiet location. The room was comfortable and clean. Only downside was the loud fan in the room that made it difficult to sleep and the bathroom shower is tiny.
