I booked 2 nights in advance on the basis of the motel's website. It billed itself as a resort with swimming pool, gym, laundry facilities. When we arrived at the motel, our room was not clean, and the beds were like an emergency cot you pull out for unexpected guests. However we could live with this. I went to enquire from the desk where the laundry was. He said there was no longer a guest laundry - he was using it to wash the motel's laundry. We were told we could use it in the evening but only at the exact time that the restaurants in town were open The swimming pool was locked and not available. And the gym had completely vanished. And there were no internet facilities either.We were so annoyed we just left the next morning, even though we had paid for a second night. Stay away

Room Tip: Stay Away

This motel was advertised as a 4 Star with a restaurant and a pool. We arrived to find the restaurant had been closed for quite a while, the pool was brown and the rooms were definitily not even 2 star standard. The 1st room smelt of sewerage and second room the pillowslips were dirty and has been slept on! We approached the owner/manager and he was rude and unprofessional. We were not offered any other rooms and he refused to give us a refund.

Gorgeous grounds, relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a well rested stay. I found my break away to be enjoyable and reasonably priced. Cleanliness of my executive room was superb and well detailed. Very central to town and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Definitely worth recommending this motel to anyone who is looking for a peaceful break away from their busy lives.

We were made most welcome to the motel by the new owner. The room I would say would be closer to 5 star quality with its large rooms and balcony. A quiet and most pleasant evening was had by us overlooking the pool, green grass and the hills in the distance. I would definately recommend this motel to all my friends.
