Only a whistle stop visit - arrived in the late evening and left before breakfast the next day, but the layout, facilities and friendly staff made it easy and pleasant. We were travelling with my dad, who's in his 90s, so comfort, accessibility, and an absence of hassles was important, and Colonial Lodge delivered on all counts.

Pros: Affordable and convenient
Cons: Road noise is a bit noticeable, though traffic was minimal during the night.
Stayed one night and was very happy with our stay with the unit having everything needed. Easy to find, good parking, comfortable bed and pillows etc
