          A very comfortable place to stay. Clean, well-equipped motel units with nice fluffy towels. The owner is a lovely lady...very warm, friendly and welcoming. Seven of us stayed here in two units during the Colgate Games and it was perfect. Thoroughly recommended.

          Stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. It pretty much had everything you needed, including cooking facilities. There was also a laundry available for use, which was handy. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.

          We stayed at the Colonial Motel for one night in February. The room was big, everything you could need was there. The management gave us some advice where to eat, quite nearby - dinner there was delicious!
