The location of this motel is great. It is an easy stroll to the City Centre. The one bedroom unit is very spacious, clean and tidy. Beds were very comfortable. This was my second time staying here and it was just as good as the first..Overall a very pleasant stay.

The property is well located, quiet and well priced. It is, however, tired and could do with maintenance.
