Positive Reviews

Conscientious workers make a real effort

Many travellers say the people who run this motel are helpful and thoughtful. Impressed reviewers note the motel's hosts frequently go the extra mile. They reportedly do things like making pre-arrival phone calls to expected visitors when the weather turns wintry or turning heaters on in a room to ensure it will be nice and toasty for new arrivals, all as a matter of course.

Fabulous location

Reports suggest this property's location is a persistent highlight for guests. Reviewers love the fact it's close to town without being right in the centre, as it ensures easy access to all the key sights yet affords plenty of peace and quiet. Being able to walk to the famous Thermal Pools & Spa gets a big thumbs-up too.

Memorable views

Most visitors rave about the glorious valley and mountain views from this property. Some guests say the vantage point is so good it's almost impossible to stop taking photos.

Negative Reviews

Pillows aren't the best

The comfort of the pillows in the accommodations is something that has been called into question by numerous reviewers. There are claims that they're rather hard and uncomfortable.

Uncomfortable kitchen and bathroom floors

It's fair to say the floors in the kitchens and bathrooms — 'pebble'-style affairs offering a bobbly-under-foot sensation — aren't overly appreciated. Some visitors complain saying they are uncomfortable to walk on.
