Great value motel close to the CBD. Staff were only too happy to help. Everything was easy. Rooms well presented and clean. Carpark was full but just found a free spot on the street so no dramas.

The hotel was in a nice quiet spot, friendly staff and lovely comfortable and clean room, had everything we needed. My only comment would be perhaps provide some bread, jam and butter for breakfast as there was a toaster and cutlery provided. However not a big deal as the room was good value for money.

We enjoyed our stay but the toilet in our room was actually tucked under a bench, which was a bit awkard. Otherwise great hotel, nice friendly staff and clean.
