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.

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
