The one bedroom unit was nice with a comfy bed, nice kitchennette and great, free wifi and laundry facilities. We had outstanding/above and beyond customer service as we were taken to and from the railway station and to the airport. Bus stop and grocery store close/walking distance. A bit worn but would stay again especially since they are building new...

Our 2-bedroom unit is a charming red-bricked split level with a lovely garden. The picture-perfect facade is uplifting and such a treat after many standard-looking motels in a road trip. Travelling as a family of 5 (couple with 3 teenage boys), we were delighted that all 5 of us had proper beds in the 2-bedroom unit. Usually, one of the...

Well set up comfortable 1 B/R apartment with good facilities, plenty of eating places including The Lone Star close by as well as a shopping mall in close walking distance, and a bus stop at the front door, Another bonus is the free Airport Shuttle.

Clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable rooms with helpful and friendly staff. Was very warm on a chilly winters night with a great location too. We had a group of 3 of us staying on the same night and we were all very impressed. Bathroom was very pleasant too, clean with a great shower.

Renovated bathroom really clean and new with great shower stream. Electric blanket. Nothing is within walking distance but with a car you can drive a couple km down the road and there is heaps of restaurants etc. Didn't like the duvet cover on the bed, don't like them on any bed as they are disgusting and aren't washed.

The hotel is located a little away from the CBD. Facilities provided are average. Staff helpful. Problem with the room lock. Lighting in the room was very low. Food joints located within walking distance.

The man running the motel was very nice, however the rooms are showing wear and tear - light bulbs missing, tears in the the couch, shower doors don't close so water gets all over the floor, etc. Also the room smelled of cigarette smoke. Good location with a market and restaurants nearby.

Thank Julieann M
