Nice and quaint motel. Good location in rutherglen, really nice staff. Rooms a bit drafty and cold, but have 2 heaters and an electric blanket, so they've made every effort to keep you warm. wish i was there in Summer to make use of the gorgeous pool.

Great motel in Rutherglen

The room was great, light, airy, clean and well appointed with a fantastic view of the pool. The pool was wonderful, so clear and clean and just perfect for splashing around and doing a few lengths. The parking was exceptional with loads of space for each car. The piece de resistance was by far the owners who went over and above to ensure our stay was perfect. They helped organise dinner reservations for us and phoned different restaurants to see who had a vacancy and then booked for us. They gave us a lot of information on great places for breakfast and where these places could be found. The whole experience, from go to woe was brilliant. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay.

Older style, but clean & well maintained

The accommodation was clean, well maintained and comfortable. Furnishings were older style, but in good and working condition. Over all good value for money.
