We thought that this motel would be basic, but what a surprise. Room was large with a sofa and table and chairs. The room was Clean and tidy, and the bathroom spotless. Little things like a bowl of mints, the bucket and squeegee for the windscreen gives it a warm touch. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Would stay again... More

Though the motel room initially appeared basic it had everything you might need and was clean and beds comfortable. Owners very friendly. Had a room at the back of the motel with no road noise and on opening the curtains in the morning saw a peaceful scene of farmyard animals which added to the country atmosphere.

Road noise was not a problem either. Tarrif was most reasonable. A nice touch was the car window washers outside the units for travellers use.... More

Rang to book as we needed a late check in. I also asked if there was room for a portacot. When we arrived at 11.30pm not only had the spare bed been moved to allow more room for the portacot, but they'd also turned the heater on for us. It's a shame we had to leave early the next day... More

If you are coming through look no further. Friendly management, clean rooms and comfy beds. Even suggested the bowls club for dinner which was great aswell. Could not of ask for anything more and if I ever travel that way again I know where I will be staying.

We spent a night here recently. Our hosts were friendly, efficient and very welcoming. Fresh milk for tea was a welcome change from the sadly common practice of long life milk in many motels. The motel is an older one but this means plenty of space and this was especially so in the bathroom which had a beautiful claw foot... More

Spent one night on this motel. We found it very comfortable. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered breakfast which was plentiful and most importantly it came on time which is a big plus. Definately recommend.

This is a good value for money motel with very friendly & obliging hosts. Rooms are fairly standard in size for a relatively conventional motel although the bathroom was larger than normal with a free standing bath.
