This motel is a couple of kilometres out of town. The units are attractive behind their verandas lined with white wrought iron lace. Our unit is one of a pair set apart from others, and is appealing because it has windows on two sides. The main room is large with all usual features, although no microwave or even a toaster. Come on guys! The adjacent en suite has a large modern spa bath, and smart decor. I enjoyed my morning shower. There are lots of tea and coffee provisions, and nice biscuits. Plenty of soaps etc in the bathroom too. Lighting is adequate but only just: I do like bright bedside lights to read by. The rom has a ceiling fan, and also extra blankets, electric blankets and air conditioning - good for the cold nights. The motel has its own restaurant and swimming pool. We had two problems: the kettle wouldn't reboil until it cooled right down, and we couldn't get normal TV on the television set. Both resolved by the obliging staff, but a note in the motel folder would have made life easier. A quiet and enjoyable stay in a high class motel room with a couple of minor deficiencies.
