Great little Motel. Free Wi-Fi (why can't the big hotel chains do this). The meal we had for dinner was a fillet steak (on special) which was sensational.

Thanks for the great review. Our steak night runs every Friday night and is very popular with locals and visitors alike. We pride ourselves on serving the very best fillet steak you can find at just $15 plus sides. Regards, Alex
