I stayed for work - it was such a pleasure staying in a motel that met all of my needs. and I was upgraded because I checked in early and paid! Awesome service, communication and overall experience. No doubt, the Senator is now my first option when travelling to Gizzy. Nga mihi

We stayed here for 3 nights in a ground floor unit with separate bedroom.
Positives:
Good location, easy ealk to shops and resturants.
Very clean and well presented space.
Warm.
Helpful staff.
Negatives:
The light from the reception area leaks into the bedroom at night (hard to get to sleep if you are used to block out curtains)
Limited seating in the lounge area.
Overall a very positive stay and would recommend The Senator as a place to stay in Gidborne.

This motel is in an excellent location - every room has a nice outlook over the river. The rooms are spacious with lovely fixtures and fittings - more like a high end hotel. The rooms have everything you need. The couple who run the motel are very welcoming and helpful
