Rooms are always great, neat and tidy. The unit we have stayed in repeatedly has the shower over the bath. Has a separate lounge to the bedroom with a kitchenette. Offers cookies and snacks as well as a full range of teas and coffee.

I stayed this week for the first time on one of my regular visits to P.North. What a surprise! From check in, to breakfast to check out; everything was superb. So good in fact that I am moving from my usual hotel for future trips. The apartment itself was generously proportioned, with a large living, kitchen, office area with fast...

From Nathan's excellent customer service to the most comfortable beds and the spotlessly clean rooms & kitchenette area ... I'm a picky customer and this place is hard to fault. Don't waste your time staying anywhere else.

I took my wife and two young sons here for a three day city getaway (we live in the country). The motel itself is very modern and our two bed room unit was well appointed, nicely decorated and spacious enough. The spa bath was a nice surprise, the beds comfortable, and two TVs handy. The location is very central to...

Arena lodge's 3 bedroom apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. All the rooms and facilities were modern and well sized, at no time did the apartment feel crowded even with our whole family! Kitchen is big enough to cook and entertain, with a BBQ area outside (we didn't use due to cold weather). Walking distance to the supermarket and...
