What a place! Phil was fabulous via email when we were looking at booking months before our stay (book direct if you can as we got a better rate) and Maureen went out of her way to welcome us and also ensure we were getting the most out of the area over our 3 night stay. Local knowledge is priceless and as we had a hire car we ventured to places we would not have visited otherwise and it was a great day. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with all you need for self catering yet the motel is so close to everything and some very good restaurants you don't need to cook. Its also very convenient for breakfast or take away to bring back to the room after a big day out and that worked for us. Old fashioned hospitality the way I remember when my 3 brothers and I had family holidays with my parents, who are now in their 70's, and also a delight for my 17 yr old daughter who enjoyed the free wifi and is as almost as fussy as her mum! The red and white impatiens in the flower boxes actually make this place stand out from the surrounding motels and give this place more character than any of them, a great insight to your stay.
