10/10 Exceptional

Clean, spacious, quiet motel.
We booked Fitzgerald on King because it was close to where my daughter lived and the very good reviews. It definitely lived up to the reviews, it was very clean, recently decorated, sunny, roomy, quiet and reasonably priced. It was really good having 2 separate bedrooms as we travelled with our adult son. We would have liked to have had clean towels each day - maybe we didn't read the instructions correctly and should have advised the office - but it didn't matter we managed! Would definitely book again.
