The motel units are individually located within a very pleasant greenery. The unit we had was clean and well appointed. Car parking was adequate for one car and adjacent parking was available for any additional vehicles. We did not visit the conference facilities but were advise by a guest that they were good.

Stayed two nights in a 1-bedroom motel unit. Very clean, tidy, spacious. Looks like these were recently refurbished. Was very quiet as well. The unit even had a heat pump. But to make this place really great, all they need is Sky TV and better seating in the lounge (like a good sofa instead of the old fashion futon type... More

Lots of space, full lounge with sofa, kitchette, bedroom and bathroom Location is ok, lots of nice trees around. Internet was below average, signal so weak i could not connect, beds are a bit hard for my liking. Road noise can be an issue,... More

Friendly service, comfortable room, everything clean and tidy. The little wooden cottages are both attractive and functional, with a good sized kitchen. Peaceful location despite being on the main road. Even a motel cat!!!

We were able to bring out dogs as well. The accomodation has a separate bedroom. The room is fully air conditioning and everything was immaculate in regards to cleanliness.... More

Overnight stay. The management were very accommodating and understanding when it was apparent ( late ferry) we were going to be arriving in the early hours of the morning. Prompt and great instructions for our unit- this obviously happens on a regular basis. The chalet unit was more than adequate for our albeit brief overnight stay. Clean tidy and comfortable... More

Arrived very late and was nice to walk into a spacious room. Nice big bathroom with a very good shower. Bed was very comfy and had a great sleep after driving all day. Location was also good since it's on the main highway.
