I took my wife and two young sons here for a three day city getaway (we live in the country). The motel itself is very modern and our two bed room unit was well appointed, nicely decorated and spacious enough. The spa bath was a nice surprise, the beds comfortable, and two TVs handy. The location is very central to...

Very tidy well presented motel with friendly accommodating staff. Studio unit well appointed with all basic essentials on hand (even a few freebies as welcoming gifts - nice touch). Would recommend to others.

Arena lodge's 3 bedroom apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. All the rooms and facilities were modern and well sized, at no time did the apartment feel crowded even with our whole family! Kitchen is big enough to cook and entertain, with a BBQ area outside (we didn't use due to cold weather). Walking distance to the supermarket and...

I have stayed here on work related trips at least 30 times if not more. Always a wonderful experience...I am amazed at efforts by the owners to keep the property in a top class condition -immaculate, neat, excellent facilities, very accessible to the town centre. And always a pleasure to meet Nathan and Bonnie, please keep up the great work.

Recently spent 5 nights here and had a very enjoyable stay. The apartments are very well appointed and extremely clean. Management was very helpful and accomodating. Excellent location if you have something on at the stadium as it is a 50m walk away. Would definitely stay here again.

Been staying here for years with work. Always accommodating with requests especially with parking a trailer. Owners and staff are very friendly and always keen for a chat. Will keep on staying there for many years to come :) (Needs more characters for review so here they are!)

I stay here regularly for work and always enjoy my stay. The owners are always very obliging and the place is immaculately maintained. The motel is a short walk from the middle of town. Would stay here if I was ever down for a personal visit as well (not sure why though!)

This place ticks all the boxes. Friendly, professional and courteous owners. Quiet, spacious, well appointed rooms. Great cooking facilities. Excellent shower/bathroom facilities (both units I have stayed in here had spa baths). Very comfortable, clean bed. Love staying in places that have nice touches to them like the gift basket upon arrival, and the TV in the bedroom. Motel is...

I've stayed at this motel perhaps twice a year or so for the last 2 years, so yes, they'd seen me before but not really a "regular". So I was absolutely amazed to be greeted by name by Nathan when I called in two days ago (without a reservation). Now that's host commitment! The units are scrupulously clean, really lovely...
