I have stayed at this motel on a number of occasions over the last 12 months and every time the standard has been high. The rooms are a good size and room facilities good for a business traveller. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The only down side like a lot of 4 star motels is the beds are a... More

We called in at the end of a day on a holiday weekend. Such a friendly welcome even though they could not house us for the two nights we required. They gave us the last unit they had at a reduced rate and then organised alternative accommodation for the following night. The unit was well appointed and spotlessly clean. It... More

We stayed with a group of car enthusiasts. The room was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The motelier went out of her way to make us welcome, assist with setting up for a meeting and helping with catering preparation. The motel is well located near a supermarket, bottlestore and takeaway outlets, not very far from the centre... More

I have stayed here twice for work now and really liked it. The decors a bit tired and the Lino in one of the bathrooms was cracked but it seems well taken care off. They have a selection of charge back for dinner within walking distance. Good selection for breakfast and reasonably priced. Internet is free and pretty quick. Beds... More

The owners are really friendly and easy going. The rest of the staff are great. We stayed in a self contained room which had a lounge... More

We stayed a night recently and would recommend the place. It is a little tired, chips and knocks and cracks in the shower etc but everything was very clean, surprisingly quiet for a busy road and good sized rooms. Minus a few 'features' such as TV in the bedroom and bedside lamps but otherwise a perfectly acceptable accommodation. Good location... More
