Fantastic location
Hillary was extremely accomodating with our daughter who stayed for two nights. We have stayed twice before and find the location ideal, an easy walk across the road to New World & The Warehouse and a quick minutes drive to the main street shopping. Nice clean rooms and easy access for parking as we stayed on the ground level. A+
