Stayed 1 night with my mum and brother. The owners were really friendly and helpful and when we needed the room re configured, it wasn't a problem. The unit was really, really clean and had everything you needed. It was good value for money 😀 .

Stayed one night with my extended family. Nice and friendly stuff with beautiful positive attitude and nice ideas on what to dos? Offered us an extra bed. Concerned about us as it was very rainy and made sure we are all in order. Will highly recommend.

I stayed at this motel for 3 nights in their busy season. It's fantastic value and well worth it. I was in a studio block- it has a larve queen bed with bedside cabinets. A sofa, coffee table and a great TV. It had a curtained off wardrobe area and a nice American type kitchen and a table and 2... More

We can't too highly of our hosts. They were only to happy to provide us with all we needed and even offered to take us to a sightseeing location and pick us up after we had finished what we were doing rather than take our own car. The motel was absolutely spotlessly clean and for the very first time we... More

A lovely motel that's pet friendly (we had cats with us as we were competing at a show), rooms were all spacious and comfortable, and the hosts were helpful and friendly. Would definately recommend this motel to anyone travelling with pets.
