Very clean unit, maybe a bit dated, but spacious. Very friendly operators, nothing too much trouble. Definitely stay here again. Plenty of parking, free laundry, meals available, couldn't ask for more.

Quiet as our unit was off the... More

Right up there with the best. The unit we had was quite spacious, very modern and spotless. This was our second time at this motel. We were extremely impressed with our first visit in 2012. Ownership of the motel has changed between visits and the new owners have carried on the outstanding service of their predecessors. The motel has designated... More

Had a lovely nights accommodation here last week. Booked late in the afternoon and once we arrived we were given a free upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts. Enjoyed the spa pool. Handy to shops and supermarket.

The staff and management were extremely helpful at this motel. The facilities were clean and well equipped. The evening meal I ordered was tasteful and well presented. Will definitely book in for a return stay next time I am in the area.

Was good for an overnight stay. Also has spa pool and play area for kids. Had we stayed longer I am sure we would have enjoyed the facilities. One could also book breakfast the previous evening if they wanted to. Mark, the manager of the motel was really nice and friendly.
