The motel is old but has renovated bathroom and is immaculately clean. At the entrance is a cafe type place that opens at 5am and makes lively coffee,so all you need right at the gate, and it was amazingly priced. It was just perfect for our overnight stay.

This is definitely the best hotel in the area. The room were kept clean by local owners. They are very friendly and helpful. It's not located in the center of town but it's a small town after all. Value for every cent. I would stay there again the next time.

This was easily the best regional town motel I have stayed in. The rooms were beautiful, the beds incredibly comfortable, and the service impeccable. It is laid out in the old-fashioned motel style, but the furnishings and bathroom are like those in a 5-star hotel chain. The hosts were genuinely friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The motel is in a quiet area across from the hospital. As soon as I opened the room door I was happy with the cleanliness and set up. The...

The Owner was helpful & friendly, the rooms were clean and tidy with mini bar. Nice pool. A bit far to walk to eateries etc but you could order breakfast and dinner through motel. No complaints. Hospital across the road.
