A simple fare cosy enough for a family of 6. However the charging of credit card before we arrive was a bad move and impatience from the owner as we had booked through booking.com and stated pay by cash on arrival. In the end...... Hais. Brought extra cash to pay though.

Thank you for staying with us and providing feedback. You state that you wished to pay by cash and also Booking .com advised you to "pay by cash on arrival". We politely disagree that Booking.com said to pay by cash on arrival and think you misunderstood the options that were available to you.As you did not advise us your wish...

I had a meeting with the owners of this motel in their Conference room and was hugely impressed at what I saw. The meeting room is of a size to cater for at least 20 people seated around a square or U shaped table, or probably 40 if seated theatre style. The room was light and airy and had a...

Booked Shadzz after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. The motel had high quality decor and was very clean and comfortable. Room was quiet. We left an item in the room and the owners were very helpful in having the item returned to us - really good service. Definitely would recommend to others.
