We were made to feel very welcome at this hotel, and the hosts did an amazing job to look after us. Our room was very clean and also quite comfortable, and we were only a short walk to town. The hosts also gave us excellent advice on where to eat, as we had great meals on both nights we were...

A very clean motel that is nicely located in town and allows you to walk everywhere. The front desk staff was very helpful and even allowed us to check in early. Sarah helped us to book two tours and helped us get dinner reservations at the best local restaurant. The rooms are quite spacious and ours came with a kitchenette.

A lovely clean motel to stay in. The management were excellent, and it is a nice short walk through the park to get into town. When staying in a downstairs room, we did notice a little bit of noise from upstairs.But overall, a great place to stay, and very good value for money. Also good to have virtually unlimited free...

We were greeted by a very friendly host, who introduced the town and explained the accommodation, and later helped us with some dinner recommendations. My partner and I...

This was a very lucky last minute booking. We had 2 studio units adjacent to each other that had everything one could wish for in a short term stay of two nights. The furniture was comfy as were the beds. It was also spotless. What made it stand out from many of the 'motel chains' was the care and pride...

Excellent location, clean with a very comfortable bed. Smallish room, with limited cooking facilities, but a large secluded barbecue area and seating outside made up for this. The owner went out of his way to be helpful, and solved a problem we were having with some theatre bookings.
