I enjoyed my stay at this motel. The room was a little dark but clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly. It's situated just by the river between the beaches and the town centre. Some will like the Balinese theme.

Absolute little gem..rooms were exceptionally clean well fitted out quite and comfortable..the Bali hut was a added bonus very peaceful. Check in was good very warm and friendly. Four poster bed and immaculate white wooden shutters just set the relaxing atmosphere. Kitchen set up was fantastic. The pool looked good ..weather too cool for me to be in it though

Great,clean room with all modern amenities; good for a business trip; decent breakfast, wi-fi etc. and friendly staff. Clean and neat - it has a mini-bar (no booze) and access to local restaurants. V Helpful staff can arrange transportation.

With this price tag one would think that it must be above the rest of the Motel Pack..... The room was good, no doubt about that, but at the end of the day it is a nice 'Motel' in maybe not such a nice location. The décor was 'good' but once again not reflecting the cost. They kindly provided a...

Loved our room! Spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. This was a lovely overnight stop over. Short walk to the river. Lovely area to walk and take in the river views. Little extras like pool towels and robes were provided, which was nice. It was however just a little bit noisy (road noise). The room however made up for this :)

Everything was provided, including pool towels and robes. It was great to have a swim after a long drive. This motel is within walking distance of great restaurants. One...

Absolutely loved this place. The room had a Bali feel, with bamboo flooring & wooden window shutters. The pool was really clean & loved the covered outdoor area where we were every night. Rooms are immaculate, wonderful shower, thick towels & dressing gowns. Loved it
