Great service from a fantastic gentleman. Airport pick up and everything you need! Coffee, tea etc available and a kitchenette in room. Very clean and well kept!! Book over the phone to save yourself a little bit of cash as there is an online booking fees added into the total !

If you need a motel close to the airport this one is great. Tucked in behind a residence the unit was well equipped for the traveller who just needed down time before heading out or home. The host guided us to the airport to drop our car and gave us the trip home at no extra cost. The unit was...

My wife and I stayed here for a month in one of the two bedroom suites. The room felt very clean and updated, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The proprietors provide outstanding service, very friendly and accommodating, which made our time there an excellent experience. I highly recommend this motel.

The accommodation is very good, comfy bed and good showers. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating, and the location is conveniently near the airport and campervan hire depots, with a servo and supermarkets not far away. Would use again. Terry & Margaret

Nice motel located 5mns from the airport. Nice bedding, small but clean bathroom. Kitchen kept to a minimum but after all, there are many places around for eating. Rather calm during the night. The office opens at 8 am, if you have to leave earlier, you can leave the key in a drop box.
