Come see Sam! The owner/manager of the property made me feel welcome the moment I pulled into a parking spot...he met me at the car, got things situated with paperwork, then gave me a tour of my room and his small but well cared for property. Room 2 has recently been finished and has some great touches from the remodel,... More

Having been caught in heavy traffic we had to phone to say that we would not make the 6.00 pm check-in. We need not have worried as Sam, the manager, reassured us that he would wait. We received a warm welcome and were shown our accommodation, which had been fully refurbished and was of a very good standard. Sam gave... More

This hotel was perfect for my girlfriend and me. It was affordable, but also perfect location. Everything was walkable, or an easy couple minutes drive to other destinations.
