We rocked up without a booking and Kevin was really helpful at trying to meet our needs with our teenage girls needing some space. Adjoining studios were perfect. Rooms were clean and modern and the location was great as we could walk into town as well as to the light trail at night (amazing event not to be missed!). Would... More

Stayed for 3 nights over New Years and was very happy with the motel. Clean, modern, and we'll appointed self contained rooms. Super location, with easy walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants, bars, museums, and the sea. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and even upgraded our room for free when our original room didn't have the bath we wanted (our mistake, we confused the names). Rooms were quiet, clean, spacious and comfortable. Good central spot. Right across the road from supermarket. We will definitely be back!

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!

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.
