The food at the restaurant is amazing! Definitely eat there! It's really amazing I've never stayed at the motel as I'm a local. Sorry to hear about the bed experiences but still eat at the restaurant !

The rooms were freezing with no form of heating. On booking in, I requested a first floor room to which I was told they were all booked... More

We were delighted to find reception open and able to accommodate us. The rates were very reasonable, The twin room was immaculate and had everything we needed from a... More
