Friendly and helpful owner and very clean and pleasant cabin at a very reasonable rate. The motel is within easy walking of the town and offers a good kitchen set-up as well as very comfortable beds. Definitely worth checking out (and in!).

A great place to stop thanks. Standalone units away from main road in nice surrounds. New carpet, very clean, good heat pump - all made for a peaceful night. Good value and just what we were after. We'll be back.

What a lovely place to stay and so quiet being off the main road. We had an individual cottage which was well-equipped and very comfortable. The owner was also very pleasant and most helpful. We'd stay there again.

Family run motel. Very friendly. Accommodation was very good. We all enjoyed our stay as we had plenty of room and the location was well off the main road - so no heavy traffic noise. Close to all amenities and cafes etc.
