The owners are amazing, so nice and happy to help, be it a lost remote, dining recommendations or suggestions of attractions for the kids. Our room was spacious, light, airy and immaculately clean and the beds had soft sheets, electric blankets and comfortable mattresses. Our stay was perfect.

We were given a room without curtains so we had no privacy, when I asked about this they advised they didn’t have any more curtains so I asked if I could change rooms which they did but were difficult about. The new room was overall ok, smelt abit musty but the worst part was the loud construction near the motel and the children’s play area was not well kept and quite old.

Hi there, sorry you feel that way. The sheer curtains are being replaced(waiting on new ones to be made) as a car went through and smash the whole window and frame out. We were difficult we had to juggle other bookings around as we where fully booked to please your request. The room I dont know about the smell because there is turn over all the time. The childrens play area gets faded (plastic) toys as its in the sun but they are due for a refresh. We had a lot of kids in and When it was tidied up it got ripped apart again. The construction we have no control over someone building their house. We wish you well with the birth of your baby Kind regards

We stayed for three nights and were woken up every morning by a loud banging noise. The room was clean and tidy, and the ladies at the counter were very friendly.
