This is another Motel type lodging on a mid-range price. The place has 2 stories. We stayed in room 1. When we got there around 6pm the heating in our room was off and the place was freezing. The heating was a ca. 50cmx40cm electrical unit on the wall which didn't heat enough for the room even though it was...

The host Vince was very hospitable, approachable, informatative, and did not hesitate to offer assistance. The motel is conveniently located close to the shopping centre. Our room was cosy, clean & comfy. Breakfast was basic (toast, cereal, fruits & coffee/tea) & based on self service concept. Kudos for the free wifi access & complimentary news paper!

Went there during easter weekends and had the lodge booked 2 weeks before arrival. Most prices were up for other accomodation but accolade had pretty reasonable price. There were plenty of parking space and room was clean and well-equipped. The only thing is there is no stove so couldnt prepare your own meals. Theres microwave and fridge though.
