We stayed for 4 nights. It's got everything we needed. And the people there were so lovely. Highly recommend. Close to city and bus stops too. Has free WiFi and washing facilities as well as a play area for kids. Perfect for a family or even a single person passing through. The grounds were clean and tidy and they even... More

Bathroom sink was very old sunken lower than the rest of the cabinet, was very dirty. Shower was over a bath we were not... More

I stayed here for 7 nights. Found everything very clean and comfortable. More items supplied than what you normally would get in a motel room. Unit was well serviced with extremely friendly and obliging owners. I was picked up from my bus and duly delivered back again to catch the bus back home. Motel is very handy to the city,... More

We were staying for a night, and this motel fits the bill. There is a small kitchen, the shower and washroom are clean and the bed is good. There is a TV with limited programming (no Freeview). The wifi is free but intermittent.

Great meal. Steak was sliced a bit thin but apart from that it was avery substantial meal for the 2 of us. So much so that we could only have the main meal and found it substantial.service was great, even for a Saturday night and we were seated straight away.

We stayed here in Jan/Feb 2015 and found it very cold (even for summer) and the units quite old and dated. Though everything was clean, the age made it feel otherwise, quite dark and awkward to watch TV together as a family. We spent two nights here, the laundry wasn't labelled so we didn't know it even existed. Found the... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, there were 12 of us and the motel accommodated us very well. Was great price and clean. The manager Daniel looked after us very well and when I realised that I had left my pillow behind he kindly put it in the post for me. I will definitely stay there again.

As a last minute option we chose this motel as the price was good at $99. We got a one bedroom unit, which was clean and tidy, however it was a very cold evening and one of the two heaters did not work properly. The room did not warm very well so finally went to bed on electric blankets to... More

This motel has gad an ownership change so if considering staying, you may wish to check and endure all is as great as it has always been. New owners set very friendly and welcoming. It will come down to the ongoing upkeep of the property and rooms that may make a difference here. Still great value and location.
