Great motel. Spacious room. Very clean. Wifi. Good bathroom and shower. Good parking by unit. Close to CBD. Friendly reception, only too pleased to help. Part of the Assure Group, stay at 3 different Assure motels and 9 nights and you receive $100 off your 10th night.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. The rooms was quite spacious and clean. The room has all the facilities necessary to provide a satisfactory stay. It was reasonably priced and the manager and his wife were both friendly and helpful. There is also plenty of parking
