A pleasant motel. Recently refurbished with good quality fittings. Beds comfortable, comfortable seating (sofa and dining chairs) and a well appointed kitchenette. Only negative was the poor water pressure in the shower, which let the whole bathroom down as it was a well presented bathroom - leading to the expectation that the shower would be of a high standard too. One of those dribbling types!

Hotel's Favourite
Booked on line to stay for a couple of days and extremely happy that I did. Checked in, and the Motel unit that they gave us was excellent. But no, they upgraded us to a larger family unit, why, I have no idea but I can tell you it was much appreciated. We were greeted by an extremely pleasant person, one I won't forget any time soon. Unit had a extra large television, which was great. Bathroom and shower looked like they had not long been renovated, Kitchen facilities were all correct and present, and the Bed was ultra comfy. All in all, an excellent choice of Motel for us. Our only regret is not using the Hot Tub. Would I recommend this Motel. HELL YES.

I agree that the five star reviews on here aren't kosher. The unit was not clean, food crumbs, filthy windows and frames etc. It's not that close to town either. Certainly not 2 mins. Pluses were it was quiet, well equipped, refurbed bathroom, big TV with lots of channels and friendly person at reception. But furnishings were cheap and in need of replacement. The lack of cleanliness was a real concern in these times. Would not recommend unfortunately.

We booked two units for a family trip of 2 families, the room is really nice, great space for kids, very tidy and clean. They even have a little play ground for kids ( swings, sandpit and etc). We really enjoy our stay here and would love to come back in the future.
