From my initial review of what’s available this place saved us. Friendly atmosphere and great service. It’s clean but basic. My room faced the cemetery so road noise was an issue. Air con was noisy but as options in this town are limited it provided a safe place to sleep.

Have stayed before but the level of service and quality of food has increased immensely. Such a pleasure after being on the road all day to stay at a such a welcoming friendly motel. Meal was sensational. Room perfect and clean. Just perfect all round.

Stayed here for one night while on a business trip. Standard motel, rooms were old but clean and functioning well. There wasn’t much on offer in town in terms of restaurants on a Monday night, so I dined in and I must say I was impressed. Had the grilled fish of the day

Thank you 'S4nnyBunny' for staying with us. Our chef does a fantastic job along with our housekeepers and other staff. There is nothing better than having a delicious meal at the end of the day followed with a good nights sleep and then an excellent breakfast to start the new day. We look forward to you staying with us again if you are ever in Innisail. Joanne (Owner/Manager)
