Liked ease of parking. But felt that some of the amenities were a bit dated

There was no where to leave used dishes except on the bench by the microwave. No tea spoons was annoying apart from that it was ok .

Thank you for your feedback. We wash the dirty dishes but granted, space is limited for stacking them in the corporate studios. The teaspoons are in the overhead cupboard placed on the cup and saucer set. We check these every clean but I apologise if this was missed.

Unique - quiet and private and yet close to town. Nice setting and view from outside.

Efficient and fast check-in, very friendly and helpful staff. Room as described and very quiet. A power failure (not the fault of the motel but due to work on the powerlines) interrupted us laundering our clothes but the manager put our clothes through the dryer for us when the power came back on. Very much appreciated and beyond what we expected.

Nice hotel, very quiet. Small playground and pool. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was huge. Parking is a little tight in front of rooms, there is extra parking just a few menters away from the rooms.

i found the room, for a 1night stay was very small and the park for my vehicle was to close to the door.
