Stayed here for 1 night recently for business. Located on the main street, with most amenities within walking distance. Staff are friendly and very helpful, even taking you personally to your room after checking in. The room was one of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in for a long time and included a small kitchen area (microwave, hot plate...

The owners welcomed us and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were beautifully furnished and we had everything we needed.

A most comfortable, very well furnished motel unit, we rented an 'executive studio' it looked pretty much newly refurbished, very spacious, a couple of wide screen tvs (one lounge & the other in the bedroom.) Comfortable sofa in the living area, usual free wifi, equipped for basic self catering needs, comfortable super-king bed & a large bathroom with whirlpool bath...

We had a lovely stayed. Very friendly staff. The rooms were spotless. It is right in the middle of town with nearby cafe, restaurant and shops. Plenty of parkings. Ample supply of fair-trade coffee, tea and hot chocolate, well done with little touches. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

As the town was fully booked out, we decided that distance was manageable, so we drove back, realising during the trip that...

We stayed in a studio unit which was immaculately presented. The relieving managers were very welcoming and helpful. The only small gripe would be that the night was cold and the tiny heater was a bit small for the job.
