                    The owners went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The proximity to the town centre, virtually half a minute away. The quality of the rooms. The staff were extremely friendly. A really pleasant place to stay in a wonderful town.

                    Great staff

                    Had extensive talks with owners about poor Internet speeds - like zero - they went out of their way to fix he problem and eventually came good. Strongly recommend business travellers contact the motel directly if they need to rely on Internet connectivity

                    10.0

                    Staff were so helpful during our checking in process. Apparently we got the arrival date mixed up but staff was helpful and arrange for alternative available room for us. Excellent service! And room has all the complete facilities we required.

                    There was no laundromat service in the hotel, Nearest one available is a 10 min walking distance with poor dryer.

                    Staff and general service. Good location

                    Loud creaking noise due to timber roofing and wall structure. Not good for sleepers

                    3.8

                    proximity to town centre

                    poor service, given incorrect room, old and unclean furniture... Sofa bed / pull out was appalling

                    did not end up accepting the room!

                    booked a balcony room but were only given a ground floor option.

                    Central location. Very clean Able to arrive earlier than 2 pm to freshen up before a wedding

                    Shower over bath Lack of car parking

                    6.2

                    Manager was helpful and friendly

                    Thin walls and lack of insulation meant you could hear everything from above, next door and outside which happened to be next to reception. Got woken by guests coming in late etc. very tiny Kitchen was put together in a higgeldy piggeldy manner. Coffee etc not replenished.

                  • Family with children
                    7.8

                    Value for money

                    Kitchen facilities were a bit awkward

                    Location, location, location....This is a typical ski resort type lodge. The in room microwave & refrigerator were handy since we were on the road daily. The couple who own or manage the place were very nice people!

                    Weather could have been a bit warmer :)

                    It was a very comfortable, reasonably priced stay, no qualms.

                    Nothing, it was all good as far as I was concerned.

                    Very nice rooms. Good facilities. Very helpful staff. Many thanks to them. Lovely place really enjoyed stay.

                    The beams creaked during night. No wind, so unknown movement.
