This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The people are extremely friendly and cannot help you enough. The rooms are clean and well kept. The food is very good and the value for money is great.

An overnight stay for business, but the team were very professional and welcoming. Also used the function room which was well appointed. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely, as was the room service breakfast the next morning. The reception mascot (a border collie) was an added bonus.

I was lucky enough to score a room upgrade - the motel is clean and comfortable with a nice looking pool (I didn't use it given it was winter). The room more than big enough for two. Nice toiletries, good water pressure on the shower and friendly staff. A nice stay

Reasonably priced, clean, spacious room and friendly helpful staff. After a long drive the bed was comfortable, the bath a welcome option and having the basin in a separate dressing area meant undisturbed use of toilet and shower/bath while making coffee. Restaurant food was reasonably priced and delicious. Would ask for a rear room next time, as traffic noise was... More

The rooms at this property were always a bit middle of the road, but the restaurant used to make up for it - the foods was excellent. But on both of our last two visits the meals have been of a much lower standard than they previously were, and given that there are motels offering better rooms.....well, I suppose it's... More

Whilst on the main road I did not hear any traffic noise which was nice. Generally the room was very clean, tidy and comfortable and I would... More
