Small , Cozy, and in a nice location - about 15 - 20 mins into town. Lots of beautiful Hill side scenery to enjoy. Was here for a business Trip and it's such an ideal place for one with business motives. I wouldn't recommend it for leisure, however if couples / singles need a place to crash as they go along their business - not bad at all. The room can be pretty cold due to the sliding doors , so carry some warm clothing for the evening.
Not much space in the room, but it's a great bargain for an en-suit with nice fixtures and interiors. There is a study table too for work work work. There is a whole shopping area with forex, banks, cybers, super markets, blah blah.. just up the road about 5 - 10 mins walk from the motel.
Down side: Doors don't lock, so lock your baggage. The road leading to the lodge is all weather but short distance so guarantee of mud or dusty feet when talking a walk. My light in bath wasn't working.. funny, coz i needed to use it in the night / early morning.. hope they fix that. They promised internet - and was not easy to get it, but eventually with nagging i did as i needed to send reports daily. The breakfast is tooo basic. Nice creamy drinking chocolate in a pot with simple toast slices and banana or egg. Etana, you can do little better. Noisy nights when bar's unleash their music on Wed + Friday's Anyway travelers - this is a basic Lodge, so you'll be happy if you are just looking for a clean place to stay - all eating and Entertainment can be done outside. The TV is not on cable but local channels. I didn't mind it that much. Hope the care takers smile more - people like to talk and be around others.
