Kitchenettes are a great asset, especially when staying for a few days. The Continental Breakfast and the Seafood Platter included in our deal were very... More

It has been a few years since we last stayed and enjoyed the Senior Package, and we were interested to see if things had changed. Julie and Ray gave us a warm welcome, our room was comfortable as ever - champagne and chocolates and the really generous continental breakfast - everything we could have wanted and now would that seafood...

The motel rooms were clean, good-sized, well and comfortably furnished and the reception was friendly and helpful.

Very friendly staff, loved the room size, very comfortable bed. Great to have a kitchenette, which was well equipped.Great indoor pool, one small problem, no air conditioning which in summer is a must, the ceiling fan not being over the bed would probably not be adequate during the summer. Good location, would still stay there again, for me the plus... More

Seniors' package is good value but there are some drawbacks. Being situated at the downhill corner of the Highway it becomes very noisy with trucks braking and/or accelerating. No aircon,only overhead fan, not adequate in very hot weather. Wi fi patchy and only 30 minutes free. As a big plus it was very clean and the included breakfast was adequate.
