Clean, comfortable and relaxing place to stay, good shower and bed, handy central location, will definitely stay here again. We arrived after hours and nothing was a problem, room was unlocked, light was on and heater was going, we really enjoyed our stay

Lovely, clean, roomy and quiet. Restaurants all within walking distance but supermarket or dairy driving distance. Easy 10 minute walk to city centre. Would stay here again and would recommend to others.

We arrived after midnight and all was set up ready to go for us including lights left on and milk in the fridge. Great location and excellent heating which was needed in the winter. Only downside was limited parking.

I usually say that all I want when I stay away is a good shower & a good bed. This motel delivered both and the service was friendly and helpful. With the CBD location was handy, there was free wifi and free parking...all at a good price.

Good motel close to city and rooms had everything we needed. Nice facilities and reception was helpful in assisting us in local cafes and how to get around. We arrived after midnight but had been sent an email the day before letting us know how to get the keys and where to find our room. The heater was on which... More

A very comfortable stay and great nights sleep. Great service at front desk. It was a bit noisy early on in the evening as I was in a bottom unit with a family above me. Otherwise no road noise and will return on my next business trip!

Our room was great for family of 4, very clean and warm. Beds were comfortable. Very good location to city centre motel. Colombo Street was busy but it's very less road noise. Staff was friendly and helpful.

A planned trip was stopped by big snow. Stayed at city centre motel for 2 nights unplanned. Although, it's -5 outside but our room is cosy and warm. The girl at reception helped us for somewhere to eat and to do around town. Great service! Will stay again next time in town.

We stayed here for one night and that was about as much as we could enjoy. Our room was a 2 bed and family room but there was only 1 very small heater in the lounge. The bedrooms had no heater only electric blankets on the bed. When the temp is getting down to -3 at night, is -1 at... More

Three nights here. I was very impressed with this motel and the hotelier. I had a studio room, ground floor, with little kitchenette and a jet bath. The room, the towels and the linen were all spotlessly clean and I even wondered whether some items were brand new. But most importantly, due to severe flight delays, I could not arrive... More
