Great location, close to most things. Easy to get back onto the Freeway. A very good restaurant, pleasant staff with the Chef coming out and asking everybody about their meal. Room very clean, ample space and up to date electronics. Downside - had to pay for Wi-Fi. The shower needed repairs as the water dripped all over the floor. The... More

Stayed 4 nights in their family suite. Biggest family room we have ever had the pleasure of staying in at a motel. Cleanliness was impeccable, food was amazing (what you might expect from a great restaurant - not a motel). Staff were so accommodating and friendly. Will be staying here again in the future.

Great motel to stay. The rooms are spotless, beds comfortable and the room service excellent. We had steaks and it was best T bone I've had for sometime. The owners are very welcoming including the family dog. Would recommend this motel to stay.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The people are extremely friendly and cannot help you enough. The rooms are clean and well kept. The food is very good and the value for money is great.

An overnight stay for business, but the team were very professional and welcoming. Also used the function room which was well appointed. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely, as was the room service breakfast the next morning. The reception mascot (a border collie) was an added bonus.
