This place is modern and and very clean. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, nice decor, everything provided for in our 1 bedroom 'room'. Fan in the bathroom, spa bath separate to shower, they even provided a shower cap and toiletries and even a couple of Easter eggs for us on arrival. Beds were comfortable (extremely soft!) we all had a good nights sleep. No road noise. Our only gripe was that the walls are quite thin and this caused a problem for my daughter who wanted to go to sleep before the neighbouring rooms did. Thankfully they all piped down by 9.45pm, but you could actually hear most of the neighbours conversations if you were quiet yourselves. I'd be happy to stay here again if we were without kids or when our child is older and can handle staying up until the noise stops. Overall, we would recommend this place to others, it was really lovely and worth the money.

Room Tip: If it's not busy, ask to be placed away from other guests (if you need children to go to sleep early on).

Really like this motel, very quiet unit, really clean and tidy, nice furnishing and not too big or too small just right for 3 adults. The owners were very helpful and super friendly. The small touches in this motel made it nice, like the small caraf of chilled water in the fridge for drinking! very good idea, and the heated towel rail in the bathroom, spa bath etc. The fairtrade instant coffee was great to see included! Overall I would recommend this motel to any one. Would recommend to stay here if you have are travelling round the area by car.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the non road side,

Our softball team stayed in this motel during the recent Masters Games. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed and very reasonably priced. Owners are marvellous and very helpful. Also this motel is within walking distance to main shopping and supermarkets in the city, yet located in a quiet place. We enjoyed out stay and would definitely recommend staying in this motel.

We stayed one night in this motel and enjoyed the luxury, cleanness and friendliness of the owners. Also this motel is a walking distance to major places in the city, yet located in a quite place. The room was spacious, modern, very well equipped kitchenette and good Wifi. Very much recommendable motel to go too with affordable price.
