A very comfortable place to stay. Clean, well-equipped motel units with nice fluffy towels. The owner is a lovely lady...very warm, friendly and welcoming. Seven of us stayed here in two units during the Colgate Games and it was perfect. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for your positive feedback from your stay with us. Glad you enjoyed staying with us, apoligise that the weather wasn't better - unfortunately that's one thing we cannot change. See you again

The management gave us some advice where to eat, quite nearby - dinner there was delicious!
