I stayed here overnight as a stopover for a long drive. The gentleman was absolutely wonderful to deal with; the room was clean, spacious and welcoming, and the bathroom was modern and newly renovated.

The motel is old but has renovated bathroom and is immaculately clean. At the entrance is a cafe type place that opens at 5am and makes lively coffee,so all you need right at the gate, and it was amazingly priced. It was just perfect for our overnight stay.

To travel into town driving is advisable but the motel is easily found opposite the hospital. A cafe can be found next door. The historic walking tour is well worth doing. We...
