Very unbderstated. A great wecome and the nice little touch of a bottle of milk to take to your room. The room was spacious and very clean. It had everything you could wish for. A spacious fridge, hob and microwave. The beds were comfy and spacious. I would most definitly recommend this motel

I stayed two nights in this excellent motel. It was roomy, clean, modern, new and the bed was very comfortable. Nice fluffy towels too!

It was very useful that they lent us...

We stayed here for 1 night. On arrival Lenaire was most welcoming. We had a short stay so she highlighted on a local map the best places to go in a short time. The room was warm,clean, the beds comfortable and the room was quiet.
