This hotel was satisfactory for a 1 night stay, anything longer and I would choose somewhere else personally. The hotel is obviously very dated (this is clear to see in advance via the traveller pics) but this is reflected in the cheap-as-chips price! The room had enough to be comfortable for short stay and as others have mentioned was very... More

We stayed here on 2/5/16, after reading their reasonable rates advertise on the road side. Rooms were clean, warm, supplied basic amenities, and basic. Bed was comfortable. The man in the office was cheerful and helpful. We would stay here again.

The motel is in need of drastic upgrade. The apartment was compact, bathroom was cold and very dated, towels were a bit thin. Bedspreads on our beds were heavy, a heater was provided in the lounge area. The hosts were lovely and brought breakfast the previous night in a basket. Next morning they even provided cloths for us to wipe... More

Very happy here for price we paid. It is an old motel but clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. Small fridge, tea/coffee, continental breakfast supplied the night before, little table by front window and small lounge. The older couple who run the motel were lovely. Recommend for a budget motel

Previous reviewers got it right. Yes, the place has 'seen better days' and is far from modern or fashionable, but it's very cosy, comfortable and clean with a lovely couple running it. If you are a family looking for accommodation that is very affordable but still comfortable and clean, then this place is a gem and it is on this... More
