I found the person on receptions attitude short and abrupt. Nobody was around reception for our checkout so we needed to wait for someone to arrive as they left their contact phone in the reception. Fixtures are very outdated. On a positive note it is quite central to the city and is quiet.

Very pleasant, friendly and helpful owner. The motel is older but efforts have been made to modernize the decor. The price reflects this. Accessible location and plenty of parking. Everything we needed was there, but we only used it for tea, coffee, drinks and snack times. Appreciated the thoughtfulness of the owner to give us a quiet room at the back of the complex.

Clean and tidy with helpful staff

Older style motel, that has everything you want. In a good spot on the highway and handy to the centre on town.
