Good: nice to see a motel refurbishing the bathroom -clean , presentable and nice shower over decent spa bath .location central however single glazed so somewhat noisy from road . Bad : clientele next door I had a guest and there friends partying, coming and going , loud / shouting and drunk and ….very messy They took my delivery order food ! Claiming they thought it was there’s. Reported my concerns about this / drunk …driving / noise to reception Also made offical complaint about it all in morning - met with no empathy from owner little in the way of fixing except I have talked to guest about the visitors . The place didn’t feel good I didn’t feel safe and had poor sleep and no dinner ! The bed was very low to the ground and bed linen not nicely dressed or presented .. cheap shiny cover and flat pillows . Given lack of response from owner or assurance will not return ever . One of the worst experiences in 30 years of travelling

Really enjoyed my stay here. Really friendly gentleman at Reception. Great location in the centre of town. Shown to a downstairs 1 bedroom unit. Spacious with a lovely deep spa bath. Sky TV and a decent kitchenette. Ample parking right outside the door. Was concerned the road noise could be a problem, but this was not too be. No road noise, and also no noise from other guests. Good price for the product received. Wont hesitate to stay again

Recently stayed here and would not hesitate to go back. Have been here many times and just gets better. Close to town rooms very tidy. The only problem I have is being told by trip advisor is to write 200 words. Totally unnecessary!!!
