Rooms are quiet, accommodate a family well (no pull out sofa but proper beds instead!). Breakfast was generous :)

Lovely staff, clean as a whistle, beds comfy, cooling great, +++++ Towel rail and toilet roll holder falling apart but did not affect our stay, just a bit of regular maintenance required.

Motel was situated just off the highway and there was some traffic noise overnight. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant and gave us some good advice on the local area.

Thank you for your Review. The further from your check in date, the more likely you are to receive one of the back rooms far from the road. We look forward to welcoming you back to Shady Rest Motel next time Regards
