We were warmly welcomed by Chris and he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Since becomming the owners 3 months ago Chris and Keri have been busy with major refurbishments. The rooms are very well presented. Due to arriving in the early afternoon Chris gave us a choice of rooms. We chose the room with a sunny balcony overlooking the High Street. The room had a new comfortable queen and single bed, new flat screen tv, new toilet and shower. We had a fridge, kettle and microwave which proved very useful.
The Motel is in an excellent location, a short walk to all local amenities, with off-road parking and optional pick-up service. Chris very kindly lent me his van to pick up a friend from the ferry terminal. Nothing was too much trouble and we would higly recommend this motel to others. We look forward to staying here again in the future and wish Chris and Keri every success with their business.
