Good clean accomodation. Bathroom and toilet very clean. Rooms were spacious as was the bed. Most rooms a baked away from the main road. Parking was easy and the motel was close to all amenities and food outlets. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Represented good value for money.

Our room was nicely sized and neatly laid out. Combined...

Some places we stay at when you first walk in have an odour, musty or mouldy. Here was so clean and fresh with no perfumes to mask any odours. The room was comfortable and the bed was to my partners liking. The bathroom was small but that's how it was done when the motel was built. The fridge couldn't keep...
