Stayed at the Avenue Motel for work for one night. This motel was set off the main road, so nice and quiet but very central to the Square and for work. The motel was very clean and tidy and the rooms very adequate for my needs. The owners were lovely, even put a table and chair into my room so... More

We based our choice on the Tripadvisor rating and reviews and generally we were disappointed with our choice. While the city location of the motel was convenient the actual street location and initial presentation were disappointing. The motel is located behind a low rise office building and has an unappealing street presence. Many other motels were located nearby and offered... More

We stayed for a night at the Avenue Motel and were very happy. Set back off the road it was very quite. The rooms were very clean and tidy. It was just a short walk down the road to an Irish Pub for tea and the Mall was just over the road from that also. Very good value for money!

Stayed here a while back my partner and I and 4 children. We hadn't booked in advance but was welcomed to call in to check in early. Given the option of spa, was a great decision as the kids loved it. Very helpful, friendly owners. They made sure we had plenty of towels for our stay. Very tidy rooms clean.... More

This motel was clean, comfortable and central. The owners went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We stayed in the family unit which was great, nice living area and the bedrooms were a good size. I would stay there again!

Easy place to stop for a night or two. Handy to town, within easy walking distance. Clean, tidy rooms and comfortable beds although kitchen facilities pretty basic, with microwave and kettle, toaster, fridge, but adequate for a short stay. Bathroom a little dated but clean and good supply of hot water. No complaints, staff friendly and helpful.

Room was available although we arrived earlier (10.30 am) than normal check-in time. That was very kind. In the advertisement it says spa's, but these are not available in every unit. Location is close to city square, busstation and I-site (approx. 5 min. walk).

We stayed at this motel for 6 nights. We were so pleased to find nice firm pillows to sleep on. Daily servicing goes beyond expectations, it was so nice to walk out and leave a bit of a mess then come back to find it's all been cleared up.

Did an overnighter here in December. Tarriff $100 per night. Beat others around by $30 plus. Clean tidy well maintained units. For the tarriff one of the best stays we had in awhile. Back section so nice and quiet. Helpful friendly operator / owners. Recommended. Parking is the only negative with small and tight parking spaces for the units, if... More
