The location is very good, not far from the airport and close to the supermarket, pharmacy, bakery and convenience store etc. The facilities are fantastic, comfortable beds and pillows, nice bedding, immaculately clean everything. There are lots of... More

We had read lots of reviews that were all positive so we were expecting good value and a chance for us to put our feet up after a long day. We noticed that the shower wasn't working and tried to call the contact numbers and went down to the office ourselves but no one was around even though it was... More

The owners were very friendly and give us excellent advice. They recommended an excellent restaurant - The Squires (about 2 minutes by foot from the hotel) and really not expensive. The room is spacious, very clean and very quiet. The bedding is very comfortable and the equipment is modern. I really recommend this motel to everyone and when I return... More

This was a great choice for us. Our 2 person studio was well appointed and met our needs and extra cups for our visitors. Our first impression was that it was very well maintained and clean and it was. It was handy to supermarkets, restaurants and on the bus route so ideal location.

I was only there for one night but it met my needs very well. I would return if I had a need to be in Stoke again and be two minutes from St Barnabas church! Squires restaurant opposite in next block served me a very good cooked breakfast.

When we arrived we where surprised to find that the inside of the room looked better in real life than in the photos on the internet. My husband was very impressed. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much!

I had a great stay at this motel and found the room clean and well kept. The owners were very helpful. the upstairs room are accessed only by walking up an external stair case which is not so pleasant when there is rain. The view from upstairs on the north side looks over the neighbours which is not so private... More
