This motor lodge is fantastic. What we loved about it the most were the owners (who were so lovely and happy to see us) and the comfy beds. The highlight though? was the fresh daphne that had been picked and put in a vase - the smell as we walked into our room was simply beautiful. The beds were very... More

This had a lounge/dining, kitchenette, spacious bathroom with large bath plus shower, and a queen bedroom with wardrobe, TV and armchair. The layout is a large square with units surrounding a large carpark. The manager was very courteous... More

Hi Anne, sorry to hear that you didn’t find our reception as welcoming as normal. We do endeavor to engage with our customers as much as possible, while respecting their need to get to their room to relax after traveling and arriving in darkness. Unfortunately the underground flooring was under major repairs, requiring intensive investigation and man hours to resolve.... More

We had not stayed here for several years and found that there had been some redecoration since our last visit. The rooms are a good size with a small kitchenette just inside the unit door. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice to have a two seater sofa to sit on as well as a table to eat... More
