Great motel
We had a warm welcome on arrival. Our motel unit was well appointed and ideal for our three night stay. It was a ten to fifteen minute easy walk to town and although on a fairly busy road there was little noise.

Peaceful Retreat Close to Town
We spent 2 nights at Chelsea Park Motor Lodge and were very happy with our stay. Check in and out was very quick and easy. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the unit was very quiet meaning we had two very peaceful nights. The motel is a short walk away from the town centre. The only minor complaint is that the Wifi is quite slow.

Extremely clean. Management was extremely helpful with information and recommendations about the area. They offered extra assistance with a transition to our next destination, which was very reassuring. They also gave us milk and extra coffee during our stay free of charge.
