“Lovely motel & charming service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011 via mobile

We stayed 3 nights and found that their charming service and the lovely riverside location. The owner's recommend local restaurants were the best choice.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

We made a phone booking after finding this motel on the internet.
The photos looked okay, so we went ahead.
On arrival, there was no-one there so we drove in & drove straight out again!!
The buildings were so old. They were desperately in need of a paint job, & some tlc.
After a quick discussion, we decided to look elsewhere & found a great motel within a few hundred metres.

Moral of this story? Don't take what you see on the internet as gospel. A drive by is a great idea!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!
