This was our third visit. We really enjoyed the time. The owners are always pleasant and help. You can use the barbecue and enjoy the quiet atmosphere. The town is small and beautiful you will enjoy fishing not too far away.

Bathroom was outdated, found mold on shower ceiling and shower curtain and bathroom door wouldn't close. Motel had a bad odour, the furniture was back from the 70s. I would not recommend staying here, would rather sleep in the car.

Well the price was good but the towels were damp, and getting into bed the sheets also had that dampness feeling, Now i know this is likely due to the humidity and heat of the day. I would have loved to have turned the air conditioner on, but the plug from it did not reach any electrical socket. The room... More

This motel is nothing fancy, but it was clean and served its purpose well. The owner/manager was incredibly friendly and helpful. He offered free pop and water at check-in, and again when we checked-out. He made sure our stay was pleasant. The fixtures are a bit dated and could use a spruce up, but still worked. I couldn't get the... More

Well priced motel. Rooms were clean but old and lacked amenities. I would also recommend ear plugs as other guests could be heard when trying to fall asleep. Owner is very attentive (sometimes too attentive). Was ok but not sure I would stay here again.

Superfast internet connection, pleasantly appointed rooms with all we needed for a very nice stay. Outside there are picnic tables on manicured lawns and even a large barbecue to use on warm summer evenings. This motel is located on Lansdowne Rd so is very easy to find and has ready access to main roads etc. The air conditioner was a... More
