3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness
Good location but expensive for what it is. Rooms are definitely not soundproof, spa bath had dirt and hair in it, shower tiles outside the shower were covered in limescale, and check in wasn't very welcoming, check out about the same. Bed was comfy and the room was a decent size but at more than $200 a night there is better value for money around.

A very nice motel, big room, big spa bath, handy to 3 supermarkets and 20 min walk to downtown for cafe/restaurants. We had a one night stay, only negative- a bit noisy.
