    Great location and very nice motel units. Good location and easy to navigate to CBD and to University. Hotelier was very friendly and helpful. Getting into hotel was a bit challenging with the current road works outside but this was only a temporary inconvenience.

    Much better than expected.

    Great room, great friendly service. Suited our needs perfectly. Close to town and easy to find. Parking for a trailer which is difficult to get anywhere.

    Excellent motel, average location

    The stay at the motel was great, very friendly staff, clean room and very comfortable bed. The only issue was the lack of shops or places to purchase food.

    Great stay

    Beautifully clean room and excellent value. Although a little further out of the town centre than we've stayed before there is an excellent bus service nearby if you don't want to drive.
