On seeing this motel I thought it would be out of our price range. Pleasantly surprised. Staff very friendly. Room was so comfortable and spacious. The restaurant has around 10 tables so we needed to book a time. Waitress was fantastic, making everyone feel at home. Chatting to all but not intruding in any way. Our meals were so lovely... More

We stayed here at the last minute after camping up north. The person on the phone was fabulous and booked us in with no problems at all. When we arrived the front desk person checked us in quickly and professionally. The room is fabulous, facilities great. We had our dinner brought to us and it was excellent. Would definitely stay...

Gorgeous location and super friendly staff. Cute and cosy but spacious rooms. Complimentary morning paper and fresh milk. We loved it - couldn't recommend more highly! We just wish we could have stayed longer!

The motel is well set back from the main highway. It offers comfortable rooms but best surprise of all was the restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious dinner on the Sunday night we were there. Hardly anything else was open and what was were heavily booked for Mothers Day. We also enjoyed a great breakfast the next morning. All the food... More

We stayed here for two nights in June 2016. The room was adequate, but to be honest we expected a little more based on the other reviews. For one thing we were in a unit down the hill which looked and felt far less glamorous than the quaint-looking section of the hotel further up, which is featured in the advertisements... More

Stayed in Clare for the June long weekend and the room was as expected. Clean and comfortable plus pretty surrounding/views, The rooms are set back from the main road which kept it quiet. Friendly staff.
