4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It was fairly central to our planned itinerary, the restaurants were a short drive and the supermarket was also nearby.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Lovely hosts and good location. Bed configuration works well with queen and single in lounge area. Having an oven works well for a family wanting to make their own meals. The decor is dated, and walls are thin. Thankfully our neighbors were quiet for the most part. Parking on site is a plenty, and in the summer the pool must be a great addition.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The body gel dispenser appears to be an ornament in the shower cabinet. It was always empty. We were provided with cakes of soap, which causes dry skin on some people including us. Water from the fridge leaked, flooding the kitchen

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Clean & neat. Space was a bit small but good for winter when it’s cold. Great drainage for the shower. Happy with that as most motels have problems with the shower drainage!
