Room quality good. Heat pump very quiet. Rattly exraction fan in bathrooh...lol. Bed good. Room by main road and despite double glazing it was noisy into the night. Noisy upstairs neighbour dropping stuff in shower we think too! Average value. Friendly staff, just make sure your room is away from the road and it will be fine!

This motel is very handy, there are 2 supermarkets within a very short walk - like 2 mins. Motel is comfortable, felt like older style that had been upgraded a bit. Rooms are reasonable spacious. Shower had good pressure. Necessary items like microwave, etc. Small table and chairs. 'I found the best to hard for my liking and the pillows... More

Both Kevin & Ellen were very accommodating. I didn't have to ask but Kevin offered free internet. Room was spotlessly clean could let our little baby wonder the room without worry. Handy central location, didn't seem noisy for us. And thanks Ellen for the bottle of wine.

We chose Abode on Courtenay Motor Inn online and we're not disappointed. We were impressed with nice clean rooms and had everything we needed. Staff were informative and helpful and Loaner Bikes were nice. Good value!

This motor inn is beautifully clean and ideally situated so close to town (2 min stroll) , and with supermarket opposite. Do not be put off that is is on a main road - the rooms are super quiet. My husband and I had a king studio room, plenty of room for us and our gear. The bed was very... More

Very central and nice rooms. The problem was the blinds were so inadequate at blocking out all the street light we may as well have left the room lights on. Had no idea if it was day or night! In addition to the traffic noise of a main road, there was a large flock of birds that spent the night... More
