The trip included my daughter and granddaughter. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the level of customer service, the cleanliness of the unit, the closeness to the city centre and the main arterial routes were all winners. They were just all round good people with a good team looking to give guests an impressionable stay. They succeeded.

We chose this motel as were travelling in our Kenworth Truck & needed parking off the street. Also, we needed dining options within walking distance. The Coachman's Lodge Motel ticked both these boxes. We were very comfortable. Nothing flash, but the unit was clean & we loved the lazyboy chairs to relax in.

We recently stayed here with our Newfoundland dog for a couple of nights. The manager was very welcoming and pleasant. We found the room immaculately clean and the water pressure was excellent. The one bedroom unit had plenty of space in the lounge area as well. Excellent value for money. We will definitely be staying here again.

We have stayed as a group of 6 multiple times. The manageress is always friendly and very kind. Very clean, warm and quiet even though on a main road. Always happy to go back and stay here. Close to playgrounds and shops. Extra tea and coffee in our room on request, tidy kitchen, with modern crockery and kitchen utensils.
