Wonderful room, excellent amenities and very caring people. I can't say enough about Graeme's wonderful caring attitude towards us and the way he took us to and from the hospital and showed such compassion when we were going through such a difficult time.

5 of us in 2 rooms. Wifi worked well and the rooms were clean and well proportioned. The local dryer did not work and the car park can get full. Front desk staff lovely. Good choice for the city..... not incredibly central but a short drive to the main areas to visit.

Stayed here one night, great check-in, early, lovely room, wifi, all Sky Channels, but only down fall.....road noise! Window glazing not good enough for being on a main thoroughfare road and being a think a fairly new hotel or recently refurbished I would think this would have been addressed?

Beautiful motel, amazingly friendly manager who offered to drop us into town for dinner and drinks and collect us when ready to return. A very nice gesture. The room was perfect, modern and very clean. We will be returning in the future
