Me and my girlfriend stayed there for the weekend. We were impressed on how friendly they were, how clean and tidy the room was and the fact that they offered us freshly grind coffee for our plunger was a plus for us. I highly recommend this motel and I can't wait to go back and stay there again. Me and... More

We booked a 2-bedroom non-spa unit for 3 nights. It was an odd combination of luxury and non-luxury, but I am giving it 5 stars because it surpassed my expectations. The rooms were clean and spacious, and they had a private spa with a locked door just down an outside path for no charge. They had personal touches -- for... More

Fantastic, quiet and spotlessly clean place to stay. Pete, Tristen and Mikayla are fantastic hosts, very friendly and helpful. The room was meticulously clean and even if you don't get a room with its own spa they have two private spas and a heated pool for guest use. If you a mountain biker, Pete has just completed a concrete MTB... More

We picked this motel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. In fact, the motel was even better than I expected from the pictures! It's clean, feels really new (kitchen and bathroom was lovely) and the beds were super comfortable. And ... the owners were even better (honest, friendly and helpful). The spa pool was lovely...

The layout of the unit, with two single beds in the living area and a queen in the bedroom meant everyone got a good night's sleep and no-one was condemned to a pull out sofa! The unit and the whole motel were well maintained and sparklingly clean. The kids and adults alike loved the outdoor pool, hot enough to enjoy... More

I chose this motel based on the excellent reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The room was clean, tidy and warm. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels provided. We used one of the spas in the late afternoon, which was great after an afternoon spent shopping. Possibly the most impressive part was the very friendly and helpful... More
