We stayed at Edelweiss motel during the big storm in the far North. The room was clean, with 1 bedroom the unit was plenty of room for 2. Basic kitchen facilities and a good location on the edge of town, staff were very friendly, and helpful.

Centrally located, easy and pleasant walk into town. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I thought it was charming that they had a little 'swap a book' library where my son was thrilled to find a copy of a book he had recently lost before finishing. We chose this... More

Great place and location, with fantastic hosts. A great time. Had a week there with three kids. Facilities were great, and a short stroll to the shops. Already planning to go back again with the family. Would definitely recommend. Thanks
