Great Motel to stay it is central to all attractions less than an hour away from Cromwell. The only down side is that there were three outdoor heat pump units that resonated a drumming noise through out the night while trying to sleep. Would definitely stay again but in a different unit.

Thank you for you review. I haven't had any comments previously about the heat pump unit noise, I suspect it may nave been that the units were working harder than usual due to the freezing temperatures. It has been very cold some nights lately which may be a contributing factor. But I will also get them checked as they are supposed to be a very quiet model which is why they were selected. Great that you enjoyed the other aspect's of your stay and if you want any particular room please call me and I can secure you get the room requested. Regards Chris
