  • 8.0.Very good

    A nice motel with little added extras to try and lift a feel of luxury. Rooms were nice but a little small and the restaurant whilst nice, was not at a fine dining level to justify the expensive prices charged. Overall good but not to a level they see themselves.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room was very clean and super comfortable. The restaurant was a bit disappointing. I don’t mind paying higher prices for exceptional food, but this time the standard was average.
