Not bad

comfort, friendly staff
Enjoyed my time there, staff friendly and made welcome. Very comfortable, unfortunately it is situated outwith reasonable walking distance to town so you have to drive or catch a bus which are not very frequent and don't run after 11pm

Location, cleanliness n good service
I spent a night in the hotel. Things are fine, the only thing want to complain is the toilet shower water pressure. The pressure really too low and difficult to take shower. I nvr dine at the motel so no comment

This motel is a little older but very comfortable, well equipped with kitchen facilities and utensils. The room was very clean! The staff were very helpful and friendly. The shower gets very hot though the water pressure is not very high.
