A quick perusal of the township showed this motel to be the best of a fairly ordinary bunch. They knew it too, charging a high price tag for a small prison-like cell, dark if you shut the door, with limited natural ventilation. Fortunately we got one of the rear units so less traffic noise.

Our room was very clean and had a very comfy bed and and a clean bathroom. There was a perfect area for preparing for a dance Eisteddfod as well. The cupboard was big enough to hold all the costumes and overall we were very happy.

Stayed in this motel during a business visit. Good rooms with clean amenities. Comfortable beds and pillows. Well-kept overall. Check in was quick and friendly. Did not have meals on site but the quality of tea and coffee provided in rooms was quite good. Plenty of on-site parking and not too far from the city centre. Overall a great stay.

Stayed here for one night. Beautiful clean rooms...food brilliant and meals huge! And staff are very friendly and helpful! I stayed in a family room as that all that must have left and it had everything you could have needed...full kitchen including everything you would need to cook with. Will be back for sure. Good location and heaps of parking.

The room was quite small, but perfectly adequate for our needs. And, it was very clean. The bed was very, very comfy! My daughter and I shared, and she made the same comment to me! Reception staff were very helpful too.
