Very clean, bathroom is very spacious. The owner/managers are lovely and extremely helpful. Beautiful pool, and a nice cafe for brekky. One thing to consider is dual levels, with stairs only (no lifts). This may present challenges to older travellers with heavy luggage. Check what level you're on when booking. Other than that, nice place, with a location close to...

Four of our six nights here I was...

Had a one night's stay for passing through the area. I found it clean and well presented. It give a good value for money. I liked the idea of a comment slip in the room, to allow you to point out any elements that need attention.

Stayed just the one night with the family. Had the family room which was ok. Had two sections one with three single beds and another with a double and a single. The air conditioners weren't on when we arrived so room was quiet warm and took a bit to cool down. The second tv remote didn't work and there was...

This motel was pleasant. The evening meal was really nice, I had fish and salad. The room was clean and traffic noise was not an issue. When I checked in, the lady on reception was pleasant and courteous. Nothing to write home about, but did the job.
