Booked a budget room for one night. Found room clean if a bit dated especially the shower with no indication which was hot or cold. Comfortable queen bed. Easy check in and warmly welcomed. Appreciated free mini bar. Easy parking outside if unit.

We just wanted a comfortable bed & a clean room. Certainly got that plus a free mini bar and very hospitable owner. Undercover parking for you cars too. A convenient location that's a short walk into the town centre.

Traveling with friends, this motel was very well priced and had everything you need. The owners placed a few free goodies in the fridge which is a nice touch these days. Staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was a hassle.
