Had a lovely night here in quiet and private motel room before playing golf at Omaha, it is within easy walking distance to many restaurants and cafes as well as the cinema. Lovely and clean with very friendly and helpful hosts. Also has 2 and 3 bedroom units available.

We had an excellent stay on Friday We had a swim in the clean pool, popped next door to the pub for a quiet drink. We slept well in the clean room and had a short walk to markets in the morning. The owners even helped us with a flat tyre!
