I would've given a 5-star rating if it wasn't for the fact that it's located near the airport runway, so if you are bothered by the noise, forget it. But I must say that most of the time the planes are landing, so it's not that noisy. There's a curfew at night time, so you will sleep OK. Apart from...

Pleasantly surprised by this little Gem. From the friendliness and helpfulness of reception to the very clean and tidy room we had. Bathroom looked newly renovated and was spotless as was the shower recess.

Very friendly staff who assisted with with last minute arrangements. Room is typical of Best Western chain motels. Room was clean - not large. All amenities that you need were there. Bed was a little soft for my liking but that's a minor issue that is about individual taste. We didn't have breakfast. I'd stay again. 5 minutes' drive into...

This is your standard country style motel, nothing flash but all clean and well presented. Good quality bed, nice towels and decent shower. Rooms are a little small and tea/coffee making facilities in an awkward position. I arrived late and left early so did not see any staff/owner. Good value for location and quality.
