The motor lodge is clean and tidy. It is a bit noisy with road noise and someone in the upstairs unit. The bed was super comfortable - very high quality. Walking distance to town and Southern Institute of Technology. Easy and friendly check in as well.

Only stayed one night here, unfortunately. Very nice welcome at reception, although we were rather early. We were allocated a very spacious unit with large lounge/diner/kitchen and separate bedroom. All good and clean. Some updating had been done. Decent shower room/toilet. Would not hesitate to stay here again - very nice, with nice people running it.

We don't rate Best Western in the UK, but this motel exceeded expectations. Very friendly and helpful manager. Nice well decorated, modern and comfortable room. The room was well equipped and had a decent TV.

This motel is a dream for the tariff in my opinion. Reception was very pleasant and simple and the room was very clean. Our one bedroom unit was extremely spacious, and the floor plan ‘almost’ works really well. There is a huge amount of room in the living area, with a very comfortable lounge, two single beds, and table with... More
