Swimming pool including an indoor hot pool. Room décor getting a bit tired but nevertheless always clean and tidy. Plenty of car parks. A range of unit sizes from large living and sleeping space to smaller space to suit most situations.

Nice motel with not much noise from the road. The swimming pool and the hot tub was very nice. The hosts were great and the kids were pleasantly surprised that there some chocolate fish in the fridge.

There is an outdoor...

I really enjoyed my stay there because of the professional service and handy location, which made it much easier for us to travel sightseeing, and come back to rest and relax. The staff and boss are very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this motel to everyone.
