This motel is for sale and I think this is for best as the owners are clearly over it! Rude, angry, inflexible are just a few adjectives to describe. After a very long drive I was not expecting to be yelled on my arrival for supposedly trying to rip them off. An innocent mistake that could have been addressed when... More

This hotel is minutes away from the Square and all of its shopping and restaurants. The hotel is quiet and peaceful and the rooms are very comfortable. Rooms include a microwave and refrigerator as well as TV and DVD player. This hotel also includes free wifi which was less common in this area. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. This... More

I just stayed at the Avenue Motel on Saturday Night (June 27th 2015) with my family. We paid for 3 rooms almost $600 worth of rooms and we are good citizens. We were treated like lowlives and accused of stealing pillows from this motel and the owner Bob put his head in my van and checked to see if we... More

This motel is exactly what it says it is very quiet, which was just what we wanted. It is a little dated, even though it seems to have been "refurbished" tidy units, with just what you need for a short stay. Friendly hosts. Could do with sorting the lighting out as its not very good especially in the bathroom for... More

Situated up a driveway, so minimal noise from city nearby. Clean, comfortable older style unit. All you needed supplied. Great shower. 10 minute easy walk to city centre and restaurants, closer. Good motel for a reasonable rate. 2 beds in lounge area, made it very cramped for 3 adults. I am sure one could of been removed. Also light shining... More

Lovely hosts and very helpful. Room clean and modern. Enjoyed our stay here and would return again. No issues and definately recommended to all. Sky access again not to great, but appears to be usual at most of the motels I have stayed in.

Stayed at the Avenue Motel for work for one night. This motel was set off the main road, so nice and quiet but very central to the Square and for work. The motel was very clean and tidy and the rooms very adequate for my needs. The owners were lovely, even put a table and chair into my room so... More

We based our choice on the Tripadvisor rating and reviews and generally we were disappointed with our choice. While the city location of the motel was convenient the actual street location and initial presentation were disappointing. The motel is located behind a low rise office building and has an unappealing street presence. Many other motels were located nearby and offered... More

We stayed for a night at the Avenue Motel and were very happy. Set back off the road it was very quite. The rooms were very clean and tidy. It was just a short walk down the road to an Irish Pub for tea and the Mall was just over the road from that also. Very good value for money!
