Enjoyed our overnight stay at this Hotel. Rooms are spacious, clean and tidy and surprisingly quiet, even though on the Highway. The room had everything we needed, Friendly service and good location, as not far to drive to nearby shops, cafes and restaurants. Good to know that some eateries deliver to the Hotel, so we enjoyed a quiet night in with a delicious pizza delivered to our room. Would recommend.
