          Quite a good motel and had all the basics and a good shower. Quite centraly located and the staff were friendly. The rooms were large and had good tv. Would I stay here again? I would have no issue staying here again.

          Stayed overnight with two kids aged 4 & 5. Terrific location, nicely appointed rooms and very helpful and friendly reception (including organising tickets to main attractions). The simple but ample brekkie satisfied us all. Highly recommend.
