I just stayed at the Avenue Motel on Saturday Night (June 27th 2015) with my family. We paid for 3 rooms almost $600 worth of rooms and we are good citizens. We were treated like lowlives and accused of stealing pillows from this motel and the owner Bob put his head in my van and checked to see if we... More

This motel is exactly what it says it is very quiet, which was just what we wanted. It is a little dated, even though it seems to have been "refurbished" tidy units, with just what you need for a short stay. Friendly hosts. Could do with sorting the lighting out as its not very good especially in the bathroom for... More

Situated up a driveway, so minimal noise from city nearby. Clean, comfortable older style unit. All you needed supplied. Great shower. 10 minute easy walk to city centre and restaurants, closer. Good motel for a reasonable rate. 2 beds in lounge area, made it very cramped for 3 adults. I am sure one could of been removed. Also light shining... More

Lovely hosts and very helpful. Room clean and modern. Enjoyed our stay here and would return again. No issues and definately recommended to all. Sky access again not to great, but appears to be usual at most of the motels I have stayed in.

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.
