This is definitely a motel we will return to. Our family loved this place. The unit was very tastefully decorated. The hosts were understanding of our late arrival due to changes in the Trans Alpine train times and the hosts had our unit ready when we got in at 1130pm. Excellent experience at Sumner Bay Motel and Apartments
