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

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.

Main shops,supermarkets,restaurants are a 10 minute walk to the town centre but plenty of parking if you need to use the car. We enjoyed our stay here... More
