Good specious rooms a bit old style. Bathroom was clean (outdated) and bed huge and comfortable. Staff was friendly and check in and out went smooth. Good location next to highway but quite during the night.

the rooms are spacious, the bed comfy and the restaurant was a real treat for dinner with a good price and quality. the double glazing makes it quiet inside as the property is located on the main road.

Perfectly acceptable for 1 night work trip. Room was clean and modern. Staff were courteous. Check-in/out was fast. Not really a 4 star. Maybe 3.5 Highway noise may be a problem for you, but it didn't bother me. Found the water pressure very poor. A reasonable stay overall. Would stay again.

Room was not what we booked - old, dated furniture that was covered in dust and stains in what was supposed to be a renovated "superior" room. We were given a tired room underneath a flight of stairs with a view of a skip bin. When we requested our room to be changed or cleaned, we were verbally abused by... More

Main issues were that our shower sprayed water separately onto the toilet this wetting the toilet seat the water was also cold that sprayed. Air con was hard... More

Stayed for 5 nights recently and found it affordable and comfortable. The staff were great, rooms were a good size and so was the bathroom. Restaurant served lovely food. Although on the highway Sanctuary is set up off the road so road noise not too bad. Main noise came from unthinking guests coming and going at all hours and crashing... More

I booked and paid for my stay at this resort, only to find when I asked for an exchange of times to arrive they would not accommodate me. If this Motor Inn professes to offer a service call best practice, please be aware that the Sanctuary Retreat does not offer considerate or professional exchange when you are making your booking.

Great for a stop over, beds were clean, shower was fine. No problem with the free wifi. We had a big room which was good, motel is a little tired but we found everything good. Plenty of parking. We would stay again.
