    Only spent one night, but really worthwhile as the sleep quality was excellent. The spa in the room was a bonus and provided us with a nice relaxing break after a long drive that day. Highly recommended to any travellers.

    Stayed 2 nights, great double spa pool, heat pump, great comfy bed. Staff were very friendly and service great. Everything in motel you could want. Supermarkets next door and nice club just up road. We will certainly stay again.
