They serve an excellent breakfast with home made joghurt, fresh grapefruits and warm items as well! We stayed for one night with our whole family, grandparents and adolescents included! We would book it anytime again!

The room was tiny, and impossible for two people to move around, made worse by the fact that the sink was in the room, and only the bath/shower and toilet in the bathroom. The furniture is dated, dark and dinged. The tiny armchair was dirty....More

This hotel is easy to find if approaching from the freeway. It is built in a motel style, but is off the road and has plenty of private secure parking. The breakfast arrangements are much better than those provided by most similar hotels and the...More
