This is a really great place to stay. The single room is large, well presented and kept spotlessly clean. The manager and staff was really friendly & helpful. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the whole experience. About a 10 minute walk of the nearest shops and petrol station. Car is handy for the main town center. The Hub was... More

With a well equipped kitchen and pristine bathroom, the unit was wonderfully presented. The stand-out detail was the service provided by its staff. Sue was incredibly accommodating of our situation, allowing us to store an oversized piece of luggage in a secure area (past the check-out time) until we were able to return with a means of transport.

We travel a lot around the country for my husband's work. Barrington's was a beautiful place to stay and the Manager (Sue) was fabulous as were the staff who work there. Had to move from one room to another during our stay there and went from fabulous to fantastic. Would recommend anyone to stay there. Everything is absolutely top notch.

This Motel was nicely maintained. The lady on reception was very pleasant and welcoming. The double room we had was very clean and well furnished with everything you would require. We had a very comfortable nights rest. It is a "no frills" type of motel, you could order breakfast if you wished and they would deliver it to your room,... More

Previously we have visited in autumn or winter but on this occasion, in summer, the rooms were too hot and stuffy with no aircon or ceiling fan. There was a fan... More

Stayed recently during the New Year period and would highly recommend to travellers. We were hosting by Sue (motel manager) who couldn't do enough to insure we were accommodated and looked after. Thank you Sue😊 - Your genuine customer service was appreciated.

We were surprised by the size of the room and en suite, they were quite spacious, certainly for the two of us. It was all you could ask, clean and modern. The only problem we had was that outside of our room (5), there was a table and chairs for guests, so you could hear their conversations in our room... More
