The Bavarian motel while a bit dated is very well kept, clean and managed by nice people. We were upgraded to a larger room as we were on our honeymoon and this room was clean and very well equipped. The motel's location is somewhat out of town but a few minutes drive would get you there. The motel is good...

We stayed in a 3ppl room (standard room with an extra single bed in the "living room"). The space at our disposal was more than enough, we enjoyed the use of the kitchen (with electric stove and even oven) and took advantage of the supermarket just a short walk down the road (and the liquor store too, for beer!). Easy...

Clean, tidy nice room. Good size bathroom. The Bavarian is just a nice place to stay. The bed was super comfy and having a TV in both the lounge and the bedroom with Netflix is a nice bonus. Thanks Annabel!

We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2016. The unit was very clean, modern and well-presented. Staff helpful and friendly. Location a bit too far to walk into the city centre on a busy road. Our unit was far enough away from the road that we couldn't hear traffic at night, but this may be a problem for some...

I have been coming here regularly on business for years. The owners are always very friendly and welcoming. The units are immaculately clean, and the beds the best anywhere.
