Whilst the bedding was clean and comfortable, the kitchenette was quite unclean.

Thanks for your feedback. Since you decided to remain anonymous, that makes it difficult to respond or remedy any issue as we don't know which room you are referring to. All rooms are cleaned post stay, so there is nothing "unclean" when guests check in. If you had contacted the office when you had an issue, we are sure it could have been rectified immediately, so that you could have enjoyed your stay just a little more. We are happy to hear from you directly so any issue can be clarified or rectified if needed.

I would like to let you know why I gave the place a low rating but feel there is not enough space in this window

We would be pleased to hear from you if you call us direct, but since you chose to remain anonymous, we imagine your issues don't have much substance to them. We do encourage guests who have issues to let staff know straight away, so that whatever it is can be rectified. Again, some people prefer to go online and complain later when nothing can be done about it. Please feel free to let us know the issues so that we can reply.

Thanks for your review and feedback. Yes we are 200m off the highway, set on 8 acres with trees and gardens, so much quieter than other motels in town right on the highway. We are glad you enjoyed it.
