Second stay in this place. Booked by a colleague, so not exactly my choice. Got the executive suite with cooking facilities. Very spacious, and good for family stays. Not exactly recommended for business stays. Close to a lot of restaurants - sometimes there are loud patrons deep into the night - so be forewarned. Also, iif you have heavy luggage(s),... More

Thanks for your comments. Being central city we cannot avoid some external noise, although all our rooms are fitted with Hush Glass to eliminate noise. We trust any noise did not disturb you. We are always happy to assist any guest with any bags they need taken up stairs. We trust you enjoyed your stay overall. More

Motel is central but the furnishings and decor are faded. It is not value for money. It was clean but when we checked in found the receptionist not very pleasant or welcoming. We would not stay there again.

I have stayed here on two seperate occasions, and have been very impressed both times. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Beds very comfortable. Very close to the central city and no problems with noise. Reception staff also friendly and accommodating. Recommended.

Excellent standard of accommodation. Room was large and the kitchen area was spacious and very clean. Easy parking adjacent to the motel. The only problem was that there were no signs indicating where our room was. The location of the motel was excellent with a short walk to the centre of town and facilities.

Safe, secure and no additional fees. 3. The rooms are clean and toastie warm. The decor is nice and there are a variety of spacious room... More
