Our family stayed for 2 nights - we enjoyed staying here very much. It was close to cafes and the town. The rooms were spacious, bed was comfortable, and the bathrooms very modern and everything was very clean.
We found all the utensils that we needed in the kitchen. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Nice, clean and spacious room, well equiped kitchen to cook full meal. Perfect for our family of 4. Great location (library on the other side of the street, very useful if weather is on the grey side), parking on site. Pascale is a really nice host who recommanded activities, restaurants and "view point".

This is a fairly typical motel, but rooms are spacious enough, well equipped and the hosts could not be nicer or more helpful. Location is excellent and parking is convenient. We stayed an extra day as we found it that good.
