Stayed in a one bedroom unit. Very clean unit. The beds were very comfortable. The spa is a waste of time, controls are difficult to access and you can’t get the temperature right, too much effort so we just emptied it. Good location. Room was very quiet

This place is very noisey, the walls are thin as you can hear the TV and other noises from the nearby units. The stupid heat pump started up in the middle of the night and wouldn’t stop. There is a strange arrangement that two units share a door from outside, when someone enters the neighbouring room it sounds like someone is opening the door to your room.

The staff were friendly! Room was beautiful. Giant spa bath. Me and hubby loved soaking in the tub watching a movie. A perfect room for a couple. Will be coming back and reccomending to friends and family!

Could have done with a better clean. Very dark furniture making the room dark. Big spa bath was lovely. Bed was too soft for me but the linen was lovely. Just needs an upgrade and a bit of modernisation plus a better check on the cleaners.

Clean and exactly as expected accommodation for the price paid and as advertised. Not flash, but clean and tidy. Could do with a modernize and renovate. Electric car charger opposite the motor lodge at the supermarket. Air conditioning in the room needs an overhaul as makes a lot of noise and not cooling as much as it should. We turned it off as couldn’t sleep with the noise. Staff friendly when needed and on arrival.
