A very warm welcome when we arrived, a comfortable unit with separate living and bedroom, good cooking facilities, spa bath, and guest laundry; what more could you want? Breakfast delivered to your unit? Tick. Free local calls? Tick. WiFi that works reliably? Tick. A great place to stay.

This is beyond doubt the most comfortable stay of our trip so far and the friendliest welcome on checkin. Our 1 bedroom was spotless, tastefully decorated, quality fittings with comfy bed and pillows and the best shower so far. The kitchenette is well stocked with a well designed fridge. This stay represents excellent value.

Check in was friendly and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The kitchenette was well equipped. The location is close to the centre of town. Queens Park and the Museum are a short walk away. It is really worthwhile to spend some time in the wonderful Queens Park.

We'd booked for a night, close to the airport. This motel was something of a treasure - really friendly helpful owners, immaculate spacious unit and with the lovely botanic gardens and aviaries close by and still within walking distance of the shops. Really quiet. Highly recommended!!
