We stayed 2 nights and I would rate it one of the best motels I have ever stayed in. The rooms were reasonably large, the extras were great, like towel warming racks, plenty of heat serving of the room was first class by Kylie and Kerri at reception was very helpful and welcoming. The property is beautifully presented.

We stayed with you the day before doing the Kepler on April 7th.Just wanted to thank you for a great stay! The room was fantastic, so clean and the beds super comfy. Very generous breakfast provided too. Shelley, who checked us in, was super friendly and helpful and made 2 excellent recommendations which we acted on. The local movie and the Fat duck cafe. Both very enjoyable. We will be recommending you highly. Thanks so much!
