Room was excellent, warm & comfortable. This motel was in a great location near to all amenities for holiday travellers. Great cafe around the corner with excellent food. Great being able to watch sports on sky. Very happy with our overnight stay.

We have a few delux studio and one bedroom units that are not facing the road and with our new wall the noise has been dramatically reduced. Our kitchenette in the rooms are not set up for doing any degree of large cooking... More
