Business trip

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Jun 2022
Hadn't booked ahead but was delighted to find they had one room left. Arrived late in the afternoon to a very warm welcome and a lovely warm ground floor room.
Impeccably clean, super comfy bed, fabulous hot shower and nice toiletries.
Loved the bedside lamps ( as I read before going to sleep and hate getting up to turn out the light) Loved the fact that the hosts remembered me from my previous visit almost 1 year ago. Great value for money and will definitely stay again.

We had an awesome bedroom on the top floor with views to Caroline Bay. The room and hotel area is immaculate with amenities all catered to. The property being recessed from the main road is quiet as well. The Host was very hospitable and informative on what to do around the town.

Room tip: Have been told by people you do not ever want to stay in any motel on Evans Rd as you will hear trucks going by all hours of the night

Thoroughly enjoyable. Great communication esp with Covid causing initial cancellation. Rooms were great for a group of 12 golfers, with great parking.Made us feel very welcome. Very handy to the restaurants we wanted to go to.

Another very good stay. We love how spotless the rooms are. The beds are comfy and the linen is sparkling white. The location is great and the views of Caroline bay are awesome. We feel like our room is like a home away from home. Looking forward to coming back.

Had one night stay here recently. We were on motorcycles and the staff member was extremely helpful with a parking space for the bikes in a spot in view of the security cameras.
The room itself was spacious, clean and comfortable.
Easy walk into the centre.
Definitely recommend
