          The photos don't really do this hotel any favours. It was much nicer and bigger than the photos portrayed.

          Very dated”

          The photos are really nice for this motel so I booked it thinking we would have a really nice treat for the last night of our holiday. But unfortunately it seems to have been let go. Very dated, dark and dingy. Facilities were all closed due to covid and redundancies. Room was very cold on arrival and could have been a bit cleaner. Bed was comfortable however. We don’t plan to stay again

          Very clean and tidy, big rooms, lovely shower/bathroom area. Bed was big and comfy a tad lumpy and very low to the ground. Other than that, was a pleasant stay, thank you.
