  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very friendly and accommodating owner.

Booked the wrong unit online. Booked the 2bedrooms unit which can only comfortably sleep 5 but we have 6people. Ended up, we talked to the reception and they gladly changed our room to a unit that can sleep 6. 2queen beds and 2twin beds. Motel was very near town and amenities. So it's just walking distance and very convenient to food and shops.
