Three of us spent two lovely nights at the Gardner, and it proved to be a great choice. The location is perfect - it is on a very quiet side street within walking distance (longish) to the art deco centre. We had the large two bedroom 1 bath suite complete with full kitchen and it was both very comfortable and...

We had two nights here and are VERY happy to recommend it. Rachel and Dave are ideal motel people, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we were wanting. (Even adequate towel rails!) Motel is in a residential area so there was no early morning commercial traffic. Units are being updated and the...

We booked our 2 nights on line. Later we received an email asking if we would like flannelette sheets as it is autumn. On arrival painting at the pool fence was underway. This was our 22nd stay and Peter and Ann were courteous and helpful. My wife was given a bag of mandarins (yummy) on departure. I was given a...

The motel, called "the quiet one", lives up to its name! It's on the outskirts of the city center, within easy walking distance of city center and shops. Three supermarkets are 5 minutes walk away. My room was a 1 bedroom bungalow, very spacious and VERY quiet, I slept like a log! The owners are very friendly and helpful, and...

Gardner Court Motel is not very large, only 10 units. It is located on a quiet side street with no traffic noise and reasonably handy to the town. The décor is rather dated but clean and has everything you require. The proprietors are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and the price was right.
