It was interesting to review this motel following our last visit and great review results. The standard is still very high and servicing the units is at a very good level. Obviously they maintain this standard continuously. The drawers, toilet seat and sliding door to the bathroom all have slow closing mechanisms which are usually only found in expensive accommodation.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom unit with two teenagers, for 3 nights. Unit is compact but has all the essentials that are needed for a stay, including a small oven. Thankful for the daily room service who kept the rooms immaculate every day. It was good to get back every afternoon and the unit was cleaned properly (beds, dishes, bathroom)... More

I was welcomed by the friendliest happiest lady, in a very nice plain reception, even offering chocolate :) . Best customer service I have had in a while! Thank you.
