We stayed in a room with shared bathroom/kitchen facilities ( our room was like a motel room, very nice ). The toilets and showers were always spotless and the kitchen had EVERYTHING you will ever need ( by far the best we have ever used, and we have seen all sorts.) Nice outdoor patio area to eat , read, chat... More

Highly rate this motel. We stayed in the shared accommodation. The room, bathrooms and kitchen were all spotless. Grounds are lovely as is the spa, and pool. The price was very reasonable. The service was fantastic. Staff are super friendly and obliging. Within easy walking distance into town. We will definitely be back again.

We chose this place for its proximity to the local golf course (5 minutes away) and the reviews on TripAdvisor were very good. First impressions are a little concerning but soon dispelled by Wendi and Tony who are excellent hosts and have thought of everything. There are even electric blankets on the beds for winter nights. We had an executive... More

Stayed for just the one night February 2015 (my wife & I) - family visit - and really enjoyed the stay. Facilities are excellent and the room was great with everything we needed, really nice outlook complete with balcony. Very friendly 'customer centric' staff. A nice place to stay and close to the town centre.
