The people who served us were lovely, it was great being close to the shopping mall and buses if we needed to get into town. We had some floaties (?) in the water when we used the spa but other than that we would definitely stay there again.

This motel is in a fabulous location

This motel is in a fabulous location right opposite the mall. The owners were friendly and kept our appartment lovely and clean, and worked around us with regards to cleaning. We stayed in the 2 bedroom appartment and although compact I would recommend to my friends and definitely stay there again
