As we drove on we thought "oh no, not one of those old motels". How wrong we were. The owners immediately made us welcome, very friendly, and showed us to our room.
What a surprise - the room was lovely. Freshly renovated and well appointed. Everything was spot on - especially loved the really soft towels.
Thanks for a great experience and I am sure we will be back.

From the moment of walking in reception, and meeting Garry, the experience of staying here was a pleasure.
The accommodation was superior to many chain hotels I have stayed at (not saying any names, but this place compared to a chain sounding like West Bestern was secont to none).
Breakfast, delivered to my room was perfectly cooked, and at the price was unbelievable.
A great place to stay, and at the price... AAA+++
