There was TV, aircon, iron and board, coffee and tea facilities and a pool. Great access on and off the M1 motorway. Free wi-fi during your stay a passcode is given to...

The room was very clean, everything worked very well and the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. We would never hesitate to stay there again, should we be passing through this part of the country again.

I booked last minute for a night here. I was impressed from the beginning. Karen was fabulous and made me feel at home. The room was perfect for a night with those comfortable king coiled beds and fridge for keeping those treats chilled. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in the area. Thank you for making my stay fabulous.

This is an average motel with small rooms and basic amenities. It's ok for 1 night stop over, but I wouldn't recommend it for longer than that. The rooms seem to be clean with air-con, microwave and small fridge. The reception desk is helpful.

Stayed overnight on our way further north. Is close to the motorway but is still a quiet motel with no traffic noise. Close to Seagulls Club for a nice dinner. Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable room and very reasonable rates. Would stay here again.
