Water was hot. Air conditioner was cool. Friendly, helpful service. Comfy bed. Clean room. What more could you want? Fixtures dated, but clean. Slept like a rock albiet the motel being on a main road.

Good clean accomodation. Bathroom and toilet very clean. Rooms were spacious as was the bed. Most rooms a baked away from the main road. Parking was easy and the motel was close to all amenities and food outlets. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Represented good value for money.

Our room was nicely sized and neatly laid out. Combined... More
