This is a spotlessly clean motel in a quiet area and lovely setting. The relief managers were fantastic. Breakfast was great and we would have no hesitation staying here again. The managers were very obliging and assisted in recommending restaurants and further places of interest for our trip.

We took our family here for a nights stay who had come from overseas. Large room with a well equipped kitchenette, beautifully made beds & clean surroundings. The room had everything for a comfortable stay. We couldn't fault anything & would book again whenever in the area next time. Highly recommended!
