Clean, tidy, free wifi, pool, middle of town, cheap and cheerful! Old style motor inn with good upkeep, plenty of dining options nearby and excellent staff. Pool lovely and a nice surprise, easy to find location in middle of town.

New owners who have changed the menu a little. Still the best place to stay with large clean , quiet rooms , beautiful gardens and pool surrounds. The staff are friendly and the food as usual was excellent.

Great location, close to most things. Easy to get back onto the Freeway. A very good restaurant, pleasant staff with the Chef coming out and asking everybody about their meal.

Hi Tony. I am sorry but there must have been a miscommunication as our WiFi is free with unlimited usage and available over our entire property - covered courtyard, pool, bar, restaurant, garden, you name it. All the instructions were in the folder in your room, how disappointing that you thought you had to pay.

Stayed 4 nights in their family suite. Biggest family room we have ever had the pleasure of staying in at a motel. Cleanliness was impeccable, food was amazing (what you might expect from a great restaurant - not a motel). Staff were so accommodating and friendly. Will be staying here again in the future.

Great motel to stay. The rooms are spotless, beds comfortable and the room service excellent. We had steaks and it was best T bone I've had for sometime. The owners are very welcoming including the family dog. Would recommend this motel to stay.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The people are extremely friendly and cannot help you enough. The rooms are clean and well kept. The food is very good and the value for money is great.

An overnight stay for business, but the team were very professional and welcoming. Also used the function room which was well appointed. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely, as was the room service breakfast the next morning. The reception mascot (a border collie) was an added bonus.
