We were very pleased with out 2 night stay. Would have loved to stay longer. We had a 1 bed room suite. The accommodation was very clean and well furnished. The staff was just outstanding especially the mascot, Trevor. It is located with lots of motels and then dining options nearby. Good free Wifi.

We had a great stay here with a warm welcome from reception. Arnold and Chili are great hosts. The kids loved the pool especially as it is a salt pool. Will definitely be back. Also great recommendations for the area as well. The Thursday night market was awesome
