Staff could not have been more helpful and the dinner at the restaurant was excellent. Handy location just off the main road far enough...

Stays one night when passing through town. Room was clean and comfortable. The owners run the motel and the restaurant. Service was friendly and second to none. The steak for dinner was one of the best I've had. Outstanding.

Arrived at the motor inn a bit late after travelling all day. The hosts were so welcoming it was like arriving at a friend's place. Nice touches like fresh milk and biscuits in our room. Room had everything we needed, nice comfortable bed and good bathroom. Would definitely stop there again.

This motel is well set up with lovely swimming pool, undercover parking and off the highway. The manager seemed a little abrupt but softened after a little conversation, maybe needs a break. The restaurant provided us with a yummy meal and room service breakfast was great. Would definitely go back.
