We booked this motel after reading all the reviews on this site. It is a grade above the typical 1970's country motel you see in most towns. The owners are most helpful. You should note that the air conditioner is inadequate and took ages to heat the room beyond 18 degrees. Also there is no heating in the bathroom which... More

What wonderful friendly service. Next time I'm travelling to the area I will definitely be staying here again. Very comfortable rooms with air con and electric blankets for the cooler months. Very clean. Breakfast was delicious too. Easy access and off street parking.

We had a family emergency & had 4 adults & 3 kids all stay in one room, plenty of room, clean & comfortable. Will definitely stay again. If i had to say something negative, then the pillows were a bit hard.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The large family rooms even though they are one room they are very large and roomy which is what you need when a few people are staying together. Sorry you did not like the pillows, we have just replaced them all and were told that for the first little while they may be... More

We have stayed at this motel for last couple of years at Easter and have found it a great place to stay as it is close to all amenities, clean and good old fashioned service. The rooms are clean and tidy with plenty of room in the bathroom. The owners are more than happy to assist with your requirements as... More

Our Sealy Pillow Top Beds win us many a compliment, Malcolm chose well when we put those in. To try to always give good service as this means everything in the hospitality trade.

Enjoyed a great sleep here after a long drive. Malcolm and Sue are excellent hosts and were very accommodating with a letter arrival. Beds very comfortable. Bathroom huge - shower was amazing! Great to have a microwave (and toaster!). We would definitely stay again!

Hard beds and pillows. No hot water for shower! Noisy and very basic accomodation - old, dated and dingy gloomy room and furniture. Way over priced for what we had.. Wouldn't recommend any one stay here at all.
