The room was spacious, clean and beautifully presented. The décor is modern and refreshing. The shower has fantastic pressure making you want to stay under far longer than needed. There was a good supply of tea bags and coffee along with other utensils

Quaint and very clean!! Spa bath and nicely appointed kitchen. Close to everything. The managers were very helpful and the room sunny warm and cozy. I don't have much to compare it to in this town but no complaints other than a wired bing bing bing in the ceiling space occasionally!

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...

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,...
