Great Stay! Rooms were very clean and set out nicely. Bathroom a lot bigger than we thought and clean. Vouchers for Bowling Club given at check in. A nice surprise. Will definitely stay again.

Essentially a clean and comfortable room, but lacking some basic maintenance. Security was good, and smokers were kept away from rooms. Good value.

Good clean cheap option for a stopover. Being next to the bowling club made dinner easy and the food there was quite good. This motel is managed buy the bowlo so free drink and membership options were included which was handy. For the price it was actually much nicer than expected and it looks like they have been doing the place up a bit lately which is good. I would happily stay here again for a night or 2 if we were on our way through.
