Good stay and good service but was disapointed with TV as there was no SkyTV just freeview which was not up to standard.

Good price. Semi noisy as next to the main highway, but all the local motels are on this highway. Owner is upgrading all the units. Our one had nice underfloor heating which was a nice supprise.
