Second time I've stayed here and I like it. The place is comfortable and the owner is so nice It's close enough to walk to different places for breakfast or dinner etc they also do room service I'd stay again!

I stayed here on a recent visit to Roma. From the moment I drove into the car park to the moment I drove out I was very impressed. It was beautifully clean and I was welcomed warmly by the Manager, Ian. He was lovely and friendly and extremely helpful. The room was immaculate. The bed was soooo comfortable and everything...

I can't recommend the Starlight highly enough if you plan to stay in Roma. Ian made the checkin very quick and easy and was very happy to provide a quiet room (and it was fabulously quiet). The room was spotless, the bed really comfy and all normal amenities provided. I opted for the home cooked meal in house and it...

Ian and Donna are a delight and are very passionate about their motel and it truly is a wonderful motel. As Motel Managers ourselves we set Ian a challenge to serve a cooked breakfast as good as my wife's and he certainly didn't disappoint! A free continental breakfast was also offered which is a fantastic 'point of difference' these days....

Thank you very much for your kind words, yes there was a lot of pressure cooking the perfect poached eggs and bacon..........Feedback from peer's in the Hospitality Business is always appreciated, both good and bad. Safe travels, have a good 2017...

Ian &Donna were terrific, couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The room was exceptionally clean with everything you could possibly need - shampoo & conditioner, shaving cream, even moisturiser. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was complimentary. Would definitely stay there again when passing through Roma and would highly recommend it.

I stayed here for one night which was very pleasant. The rooms are large, comfy and very clean and tidy. I was made to feel welcomed at check in, with the staff very friendly. On check in I was offered free breakfast as they had introduced a deal after I had booked. They didn't have to do that so it...

Have stayed here many times and have always found it to be extremely clean and quiet. Beds are comfy, as are the pillows,l and what's more it's central to town. The owners are helpful and friendly, and almost forgot to add that they have FRESH MILK which is rare these days.

Thank you, yes we decided to provide every guest with a choice of two pillows at their bed head. A 'soft & low' & a 'Medium / high'.
