I get some people have had mixed experiences but for me it ended up being a great place to stay, I had a very comfortable bed and it was a quiet and relaxing place to stay, you have to accept it’s a stock standard motel and is past its prime but it’s worth a go, I’ve stayed in worse I can tell you

Nice big clean tidy room. Sadly manageress not available for check in, turned up 90 mins after supposedly check in time. Friendly enough when she did arrive to collect payment but had to dash off to see to her daughter so no available til later. Not the best customer service. Garden view as praised by previous reviewers was neglected & untidy so disappointing. Suited us for an overnight stop but I wouldn’t rush back.

We only spent one night here but I was just perfect for that. Right off the Main Street into Portland, very easy to find with clear signage. Lots of parking. The room and bathroom was very clean and spacious. Even though we were close to the main road we didn’t hear a thing, no passing traffic noise. Hosts were very friendly. Recommended for a short stay.

We stayed here for one night as we travelling through. While not a 'scenic' location, the grounds were well-maintained. Clean and quiet, family-run accommodation. Linens were fresh and wifi coverage was good. We really couldn't ask for more for the price. Highly recommended if you're driving through.
