Recently stayed for a week with a large group and although the hotel is a little dated, basic and on the main road (can be noisy) it is great value for money and the manager is first class. Nothing was a hassle and he went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable. You get what you pay... More

We stayed 2 nights for a family wedding and with wedding guests scattered around the motel stretch there was some comparing. We had great value, really easy parking,spotlessly clean room and Kevin was so helpful. We even had a coffee over the bed disaster and all was managed easily and without fuss. Our daughter, partner and infant were in the... More

Excellent value for money, decor is fairly neutral and up to date but you can see the motel itself is not very modern. Nice big tv screen. Well equipped and free wifi. The owner Kevin was very friendly and helpful.

If you want something nice but not expensive good place to stay. Is an older motel but the rooms seem to have had... More

My single room was quite small with no electric blanket and no bedlamp, but was very clean, as was the adequate bathroom. Slightly dated. I was not able to park in front of my unit and had to drag my suitcase through the pouring rain. I was allocated a room next to the "massage room" but sometime later in the... More

After getting lost finding the motel in the rain it was great to be greeted by friendly hosts who had gone out of their way to ensure our accomodation was just right for us. Even better was the discount we got for being senoirs. Our 2 bedroom unit was perfect giving our elderly Mother her privacy. It was well equiped... More

Great, friendly, accomodating service. Clean rooms, everything worked. Not the most modern bathroom but functioned well. Comfortable bed. Kitchen had all we needed. Sky TV and wi-fi. We had a two room unit still very quiet.
