    Room was great, very pleased with the experience at the motel. Bathroom was very dated, missing a shower door panel (maybe they intend for it not to be fully closed off?) Bathroom renovation would do amazing things for this motel. Location was great, motel restaurant...More

    Lovely stay for a few nights, very large room recently renovated. Large Spa bath, not sure of the over head shower from the ceiling. Bed was cosy! Easy walking distance to the city centre, car parking available underneath.
