Great facilities , reasonable modern. The host Vickie is very helpful and welcoming nothing is too much trouble. Recommend spa bath . It is a large motel but still very quiet. Would recommend to all travellers.

Found this place online. Great little motel was close to town. Lady at reception was lovely and very friendly. Room was basic but very clean. Slept 4 of us comfortably. We stayed on a Saturday night and had a room at the front and was pretty noisy. recommend.
