We arrived late and very tired after our flight. The key was left for us in the lock box and the townhouse was comfortable, warm and with essentials like teabags provided (something we were very grateful for!). Easy to find, good value for money and excellent communication from staff. Would def stay again.

The bath had mildew growing around it. The double bed was hard against the wall. The heater was hard against the sofa and thus inefficient. We... More

Very helpfull receptionist and enormous bungalow for very reasonable price. Wifi was completely free, but sometimes loging on could be difficult. The motel close to the airport and right on the State highway no.1 from north to south.
