A very friendly welcome from the lady on reception who explained how to get to restaurants and the city centre. All was within easy walking distance. As others have mentioned, there is... More

Booked through Trivago and Expedia. Central location with an easy walk to the city centre. Our room had recently been renovated and was modern and clean. Staff were welcoming and knowledgeable about local facilities.

The motel look old. It was super noisy because it just next to the high way. We could not sleep until really late and had to wake up quite early in the morning. Even though the staff are friendly but it can't make me come back there for the second time.

This room was super clean and great to stay in. We have an 8 month old baby who loves crawling around and we were happy for him to explore the room. Staff are very friendly too, would highly recommend it. Centrally located and lots of parking at the back.

Good location with buses nearby. About 10 minute walk to downtown. Limited number of places to eat in the vicinity. A great Thai food place across the street, a sports bar about 10 minutes away, a cafe/florist next door. Good size rooms with kitchenette, friendly staff. Laundry room (charges apply).

Room clean and comfortable but let down by small tears in window curtains. Motel convenient for short stroll into town with three cafes close by. Good offstreet parking. Overall consider it was good value but fortunate... More

We arrived after hours and getting the key was easy. The room was neat and tidy with comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Hotel is conveniently located close to the city with just a short walk to the city and sites.

Incredibly noisy - situated on a very busy road, but between single glazing and no insulation it was ridiculously loud inside our room. Discussed with reception and was offered earplugs - this should give you an idea of how bad it is. This was the extent of their efforts and understanding. Tried to get a refund so we could go...
