Hotel's Favourite
We weren't here except to sleep and have breakfast, but the beds were comfy and the place was nice and clean with everything you need - milk in the fridge and a heat-pump for warmth. The guy at the front desk was lovely. Very good value for money.

Super friendly staff in a nice quiet room. The room was big and clean with a nice kitchen area and a lovely comfy bed. With parking outside and a few restaurants across the road it’s close to town and the airport so a perfect stop over hotel. Good price and placement makes it perfect.

This motel is of top quality. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The manager is friendly and helpful. I would not stay anywhere else in Palmy. I travel a lot and appreciate a comfortable clean place to relax after a long day of travelling.
