Recently my husband and I had the pleasure of staying overnight at this delightful gem of a motel. Our air conditioned room was indeed comfortable, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. There was plenty of hanging and storage for our clothes and luggage. The kitchenette, complete with a microwave, kettle, bar fridge and stylish crockery and cutlery, was ideal to prepare... More

Accommodation was very clean but we had no internet connection for our stay & no phone line so couldn't even notify the office of problem. Very disappointed that no repair was done for our stay. Bedding was comfortable but didn't realise on booking that property was on the corner of 2 busy streets.

Sometimes those things are out of our control but we do apologise for the inconvenience. The fact that your inhouse phone didnt work either is an... More

Very friendly couple both at the time of booking and during my stay. I arrived on my motorbike after a long day and they provided a secure undercover parking area.
