hanks for the hospitality
We chose this motel because of the reviews about the beds - and they were great! We had 5 nights and were grateful to the hosts that they allowed us to be self-sufficient. Our standard family room would have been a tight fit for a family of 5 but we found it OK for 2. Water always hot, fresh air at night with fly screens, 'kitchen' corner helped keep eating out to a minimum. Upgrade of facilities making this very comfortable but not detracting from the quaintness of 50s style. Parking was OK, just need to be good at backing!

Easter trip
This was the second time we have stayed here - we use it as our base for Bluesfest over Easter. New owners are fabulous, nothing was too much trouble. Our adult son drove down and stayed with us for one night. They were happy to accommodate the extra vehicle within the property. The owners ensured every day that we had plenty of towels, coffee etc. We have booked again for Bluesfest next year.

Nice motel, value for money
Nice motel, would stay again however room ac was very old although it worked well it was noisy and daggy. Parking was tight, bathroom very small but the bed was very comfortable and therefore I'd stay again.
