The rooms have a washing machine and dryer, very handy when traveling. The other thing that impressed me was a complimentary breakfast pack. I had an early start, had breakfast in my room and left, was very convenient. I would also like to mention the quality and price of the meals was excellent.

Warm and friendly greeting when booking in. Rooms spacious and very clean. Continental breakfast included in room price which was very reasonable. Comfortable bed. Reunion held in the hotel, so nice and close to roll into bed. Would recommend this motel to family and friends. Free wifi a little patchy.
