We have stayed here before -5 years ago. It's close to the friends we wanted to visit. We love unit 12 overlooking the beautiful park land and views of the mountains. Hosts are friendly and helpful but the decor needs a serious makeover. Lovely to have a separate bedroom but the lounge has uncomfortable sofa and chair, the curtains are... More

Nice quite spot, large tidy facilities. Pool was clean and well kept. A quick drive into town. Stayed in room 1 and only remark is that plumbing is a little noisy when others are using taps/ toilets I'm guessing.

A nice and tidy unit with everything we needed, even a cricket game on in the park for enteraiment. Friendly family running the place that make a good cooked breakfast. The pool was a great bonus. Price for the unit was the most expensive of anywhere we stayed but that seems to be the norm for this region

We spent one night here and found the motel to be very good. The room was large and well appointed. There was plenty of doors out onto the garden which lead to a lovely pool. The pool was a great temperature and very clean. The motel was close to the centre of Richmond. We did not walk but it was... More

We stayed two nights in a two bedroom unit and thoroughly enjoyed it. Spacious unit with a well equipped kitchenette. Very clean. It's on a main road and we had a unit at the front. While we could hear the traffic, it wasn't loud and didn't affect our sleep. The view across the pool and Jubliee park was lovely. We'd... More

As I explained at the time you checked in your bookings were made through a travel agent who then purchased the rooms off a wholesale accommodation agent to whom we provide allocations. Our dealings were not directly with the agent that you approached and checking through the correspondence we received there... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two weeks whilst our house was being repaired after a flood and it really was our home away from home. Clean, warm and safe and secure. We felt very welcome and nothing was a problem should we have asked for it.
