Clean room and excellent restaurant. Good value and nice extra touches in the room. Very good staff in the restaurant and at reception. Good selection of wine for a Best Western. Highly recommend this motel.

Pretty standard motel built some time ago but in good condition with a large and comfortable room. Very quiet and great value for money. Seniors get a discount and breakfast included if you book the "Seniors Special".

The quality of food at dinner was excellent, I had grilled whiting that was fresh and delicious. I only interacted with one staff member here and he...

All the staff, especially at the front desk, were warm, welcoming and friendly. We dined in the restaurant one night and had room service the following night as well as breakfast and...

Good friendly check in and check out. Stayed in single queen room. Good sized parking bays. Room was a good size comfortable and clean. Bathroom a little small and shower curtain allowed some water onto floor. Motel was quiet. Service staff very good with added touch of cleaning car window daily. Overall a pleasant stay and would stay again.
