We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day here, it was very comfortable. It had seventies style deco which was cool. It has a really nice warm pool and a Hot Room which was a nice way to spend Christmas afternoon. The staff were very friendly and it was very close to town. We would stay here again.

Nice rooms with ample kitchenware, very friendly and caring reception. Great location, only few minutes walk from restaurants and Central Mall. Some minor faults in the rooms (malfunctioning kettle and stove) but were fixed quickly and promptly. Would recommend to all!

These guys made my solo stay so much better. At check in, Carey was really polite and friendly. She suggested places to eat, things to do and showed me to my room. Her husband was great with tips for places to go, discount vouchers and great driving instructions. The coffee place near Hobbiton was great. It's refreshing for a host...

This is a motel with basic kitchen, clean bathroom with basic toiletries. The room can accommodate 3 people, with a single bed in another small room. As we returned back to the room in the evening, it was too cold to try out the thermal jacuzzi in the other bathroom. There is a very small pool in the motel compound...
