“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2008

If you want to see what can be done to an old dog of a motel then the $70 charge is worth the visit. The owners need to be front paged in Home and Gardens magazine for their skill at prettying up this 50's motel into the modern era. Congratulations! Book early! This motel has only ten rooms.

Stayed here for work in July 2008, very clean newly renovated motel a few km from Rathtrevor beach provincial park. Only 85 dollars a night during the summer! A fantastic value for the money.
