Nice room in the studio apartments section. Been modernised, so bathroom and kitchen we lovely. Spent two nights. Close to town, so no problems walking into city. Room was warm enough. Only steps from car park, up to first floor apartments. Would stay again.

We stayed 2 nights here in room 316, one of the studio apartments. It seemed like the room had been spruced up recently as everything was clean and modern. Nice couch in front of the TV, large comfy bed, modern bathroom and kitchen facilities. It is about 150 metres down the road from the main reception area in what was... More

Couldn't fault it! We got the biblical 'last room at the inn' at short notice and therefore weren't expecting much... but we were pleasantly surprised. The room had so much character and charm and we had fun. It reminded us of medieval times and we joked and laughed away our night's stay. Huge, updated bathroom with all conveniences and toiletries.... More

We arrived here quite late in the evening so once we checked in, we pretty much went straight to bed. The accomodation looks like converted barns from the outside with an old windmill in the yard area. Unfortionatly we were on the first floor, there was no lift just wooden steps, and with suitcases and bags I imagine this would... More

We stayed in a downstairs studio unit - number 319 - for one night. Room was reasonably comfortable and clean but is not air-conditioned so we slept with window open (fly screen on the window). Motel is in a good location and easy walking distance to Cataract Gorge and restaurants in the seaport area.

We had an overnight stay in a self contained room in the building 200m down the road from reception. Staff were friendly enough. We had a problem with our tv which turned out to be a problem with the safety switch being tripped. This was happily sorted out with the maintenance man. Room was a good size,and clean. Generous toiletries... More

These apartments are in what was a barracks. The rooms are not bad size wise but too dark in decor. My wife reckoned they were like prison cells. They need lightening up,get rid of the black furniture, dark carpets and the dark wood kitchen doors. Apart from that they are clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable. We only stayed... More

As others have said, this quaint Olde English establishment had been left in a run-down state and is now in the middle of a refurbishment. Our room was a Studio in the Apartment section. It had been refurbed and was in a shiny and clean condition. Room size was big with a great kitchen that supplied all the necessary kitchen... More

A group of us stayed here and had a lovely time. Rooms are sizeable, fairly heavy with dark timbers, but very atmospheric. The toiletries are generous and lovely, and the watermill and the inner garden are just picture perfect. Also just a stone's throw away from Cataract Gorge - if you walk around to the suspension bridge and follow the... More
