Rooms are clean and well equipped. Very close to the town centre, so plenty of places to eat and shop all within easy walking distance. Great views of the lake from the motel as well. A good budget option if your travelling through this part of the coast.

This motel was chosen from Trip Advisor reviews for an overnight stay whilst travelling. We were made very welcome and the room was clean and quite well equipped. It is well located in easy walking distance of the town facilities. My only disappointment was the failure of the wi-fi to connect as is common in many motels.
