Located only minutes from Lingard Private hospital. We needed a late check in and they did everything to accommodate that for us. We found it to be very clean and the bedding was super comfortable! Lovely service and a great cooked breakfast for only $10.

Great room (2 bedroom apartment). Excellent service. We had to change plans at short notice and they were so understanding and flexible. We will definitely be back! Make sure you call them for a great rate and book direct so your money goes direct and not to a broker in the US!

Happy to stay here again. Diana, the staff member, was awesome to work with and the motel is very clean and comfortable. We have stayed here before and I am sure we will again. Really comfy bed and hot water is devine. Chinese restaurant next door was fantastic in the pouring rain, otherwise 2 pubs close by. If you need to go tot he Lingard Hospital, it is the best place to stay - so close and easy. Has off street parking and a servo next door with expresso coffee. Free bikes to get around on.
