This isn't the closest motel to town, but it's right next door to it! Rooms have been refurbished and are quite stylish with new lighting, fridge and furnishings. Free wifi worked beautifully. Cute room with almost everything we needed. (They cheerfully provided a coffee plunger.) Spacious light-filled bathroom. Great value.

Close to town, being only one street back from the High St, so convenient to supermarkets, shops etc. Double glazing ensures quiet units and great sleep. We had a slightly tired shower, but it was powerful and clean, and the rest of the bathroom was spotless. Really friendly hostess who's helpful and obliging. We'd happily return here.

We stayed here recently due to a family emergency, and had unit 12. One of the reasons for choosing this motel was the free wifi. This only worked if we stood out in the car park area, and as it was raining most of our stay, it was less than ideal. The 'small bedroom' was literally this size of a... More

Thank-you for your feedback, we have taken it on-board and made considerable progress on many of the points you raise since we joined the management team here in November 2013. 1. Wifi - we've recently had fibre installed and we are now the first in town to offer free high speed internet access. We've also upgraded to a new wifi... More

We stayed for 2 nights, rooms comfortable, clean. Owner/manager helpful with suggestions of where to eat etc. Units are older style, but have been renovated,to reasonable standard. Outside door does not fit properly and smoke seemed to infiltrate room from smokers standing outside next door unit.

Thanks for the feedback. We've bought new rollers for the doors and will get these installed. We'll put our thinking caps on for a solution to the smoke drift! Janine and Sam More

Highly recommend this motel - we stayed there in the weekend and the owners were very friendly and accommodating and the rooms were spacious, very clean and light. Our room had a little lounge and a double bedroom and we had friends right next door so was great fun. Thanks Amble Inn Motel!

We stayed in the two bedroom unit arriving at about 3pm. The unit was cold and had no sun despite it being a sunny winters day. We immediately turned on the heaters but these didn't seem to add much heat in the short term. Oh well we thought perhaps if we leave them on it will be warm by the... More
