Nice motel down a long drive which places it well away from the traffic noise. Our unit was nice and clean and very functional with large high bench to separate the kitchenette from the main room and made an excellent table to sit around.

We we looking for somewhere to stay between xmas and New Years and were lucky enough to find a room (or two) at short notice. The staff were very accommodating and the place was clean. There is a cafe across the road that was very handy and the location was great. Would stay again!

Lovely greeting on arrival on the Sunday afternoon. As a family group with 4 teenagers they were very accommodating and gave us a late check out so the teens could have a sleep in. Also, very kindly sent back left items. Great location, clean and tidy. Thanks Lucy and your team.

The motel was clean and tidy, the staff friendly and helpful, and our stay was a relaxing one! It was easy to walk into town as well. Soaking in the spa admiring the view was also nice, and checking out was easy. Thank you!

New owners who seem like they freshened up the place. Special "old school" atmosphere. Can fully recommend this place. Clean and everything you need. Even for me who is being used to 4 and 5 star hotels.
