We had the smallest unit in the complex but was still very comfortable. Bathroom had a spa bath in it. Room was clean, bed was very comfortable and everything worked. The property is right on the edge of the CBD so was walking distance to restaurants, etc. Highly recommended.

It was close to town so get around was easy.The staff were helpful and friendly. Only downsides were a musty smell in our room indicative of a previous water leak.and a sticky bathroom door needing to be forcefully pulled open or shut. otherwise a nice motel overall.
