Service here is always great. Just a little out of the main shops so nice and quiet. Travelling for work and has everything you need. The spa is a great plus after long days of driving.

Clean and comfortable
Nice motel that is clean and comfortable. Some of it is looking a bit old and worn, but I understand the new owners are in the process of sprucing it up.
Christine, nz1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
An older motel complex with new owners who are working hard to upgrade. Been recently painted etc. Still some minor things to be refurbished. Love the mineral pool with our unit. Situated a way from CBD .
