    We just wanted a comfortable bed & a clean room. Certainly got that plus a free mini bar and very hospitable owner. Undercover parking for you cars too. A convenient location that's a short walk into the town centre.

    Traveling with friends, this motel was very well priced and had everything you need. The owners placed a few free goodies in the fridge which is a nice touch these days. Staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was a hassle.
