Enjoyable Stay
Good location of motel which is about 10 minute walk into the city centre. Rooms are a good size and in good condition. The only real downside was that the wifi signal could be a bit weak at times. Overall i would stay here again.

The property was very clean and updated. The only draw back, was that the WI-FI was so weak and slow that it was unuasable.

Tidy motel and in city area. The room we chose online wasn’t quite small child friendly but they happily moved us to a ground floor room when requested which was great. Would be happy to stay again 😊
