Good value for money. Large room, comfortable, clean and well appointed with all that you would need for your stay. There is also a large bathroom with spa bath should you need it. Laundry facilities are also on site and parking at your door.

Really large rooms with great decor. King size bed, spa bath, great shower with plenty of pressure. Large screen tv. And plenty of lights. Everything felt new and clean. I would definitely stay again.

We loved everything about this motel and would definitely recommend it. From the size of the room, the 50 inch tv, free wifi, spa bath and not to forget the friendly hosts. The best by far of our choices this trip.
