We stayed here as a large group and were very pleased. It is very clean, rooms well appointed with all the amenities you should need. Some rooms a bit noisy with the traffic, but really not a major consideration. We would definitely return.

Great accommodation but the location is pretty grey. Friendly host. Modern, clean facilities. Rates are a bit high for the location relative to cities where due to Covid hotels are competing on price.

Very nice well appointed rooms. Great bed and small kitchenette. Only gripe would be if you are on the ground floor and the person on top floor start the spa bath the droning noise is very load. Next time i will ask for a 2nd story room

Thank you for you feed back. I am sorry that the noise from the spa bath was annoying. I have not been told about this before. I do not know if there is anything we can do about it but I will definitely look into the problem We look forward to you visiting us again.

It was running late and we looked on Ebookers for somewhere to stay, this place popped up as close by and good ratings, We have virtually no experience of motels, but I have to say we where impressed, the room was large and spotlessly clean, it had a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, extra pillows, 42” tv, sky, iron, tea /coffee/milk, table/chairs, settee and spa bath, Very impressed with effort put into making this motel a home from home, We couldn’t have had an easier and more pleasant check in and stay at a five star hotel,

We had a great stay here in this motel. Nice clean rooms, bed a bit bouncy and sofa uncomfortable like others have said but it was quiet and clean. Daughter loved the spa bath.Thanks so much for a good stay.

Thank you for your great review. Thank you for bringing to my attention that you found the sofa uncomfortable, they are new sofas but are a lot hard than the one I tried before ordering them, I am hoping they will get softer as they are used but I will be testing them to check if this happens or I will have to rethink my choice. Thanks again for taking your time to review the Phoenix Motels
