The owners are friendly, very helpful and efficient. Moira & Ian could not do enough for us to make our stay any happier. They are both hard workers and the motel was very clean both inside and out. Thankyou guys

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

Really like this motel, very quiet unit, really clean and tidy, nice furnishing and not too big or too small just right for 3 adults. The owners were very helpful and super friendly. The small touches in this motel made it nice, like the small caraf of chilled water in the fridge for drinking! very good idea, and the heated... More

We stayed one night in this motel and enjoyed the luxury, cleanness and friendliness of the owners. Also this motel is a walking distance to major places in the city, yet located in a quite place. The room was spacious, modern, very well equipped kitchenette and good Wifi. Very much recommendable motel to go too with affordable price.
