This property is modern and well located to the city centre. The bed is dreamy and the unit comes with above average facilities. The outdoor setting was great and TV large and well placed. It really was a lovely room to spend a few days.

This is possibly the cleanest and well maintained motel I have ever stayed in. It is a credit to the cleaning team and the management. Very imformative and friendly managers. Walking distance to the centre of town and the information centre. Lovely riverside cafe close by during the day. Would definitely stay here again. Cannot speak highly enough of the cleanliness and functionality of the room. Very happy
