The Edelweiss Motel was excellent and the people running it were lovely too. It's very quiet and in a good position. We had a studio room, which was VERY compact, so I'd probably go for something bigger another time. Cooking facilities were good and they have a great heated pool and spa. Would stay here again.

I booked the smallest studio as i was on my own and away for business purposes. The unit was totally adequate (the hosts had made it clear to me when booking that it was small but i said it would be all I req'd) - i thought the space had been very cleverly utilised. Importantly, the bathroom was well laid... More

All reviews seem to be very positive but I must mention the size of the room that we were alloted ...very small. It might not matter to some but it felt claustrophobic me. Otherwise all was pretty good.

I hate to give this place a terrible review, as the room was fine. However there is a bar next door that blasts music all night long, and very loud and probably drunken patrons that join in the chorale. We didn't sleep for the two nights we were there. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night so I... More

Our stay was very pleasant and the staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the outdoor area and a chance to swim in the pool. Quiet location and close to everything. The bathroom was very spacious.

We stayed for two nights in this delightful motel which was close to the town amenities yet quiet and convenient. The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly and they made sure we had an excellent stay. Nothing was too much trouble so we could not recommend it highly enough.
