I stayed two nights and will definitely go back. Good service and friendly staff. The Facilities are good and the location is nice and central. The motel is near a bus stop and close to the city centre.

Good value, comfy beds and all you might need in the kitchen. Our hosts were lovely and recommended Dickens for a meal which was very good. It was also somewhere we probably wouldn't have found on our own. The wifi worked well and was free!

We stayed at Motel Villa del Rio, in a house they have on the premises. It was fantastic as we were a team of 5, and the house was absolutely ideal, as you could cater for yourself and weren't in a number of small rooms.

My family stayed at this motel for a night and we were very impressed by the facilities and the service. The unit was very spacious and clean. I particularly liked the roomy bathroom and plenty of room to move around in the lounge area. The pool and spa pool were a definite bonus 😊

Very clean and comfortable one bedroom unit with a queen bed in the bedroom and 2 singles in the lounge area. Very friendly and helpful hosts, Judy and Dean. Although in a busy area, night time was quiet - no problems sleeping.

We woke them up at midnight and they were so lovely and understanding. The unit was the cleanest I've ever stayed in and very comfortable. Thanks so much for taking the stress out of a stressful weekend. Definitely our first choice if we need somewhere again.
