All the staff we talked to were amazingly friendly and helpful. The accommodation was lovely, clean, and comfortable. Their focus on eco friendly, sustainable practices is incredibly good to see and comes across as truly genuine. The heated pool and mineral pools, as well as our in room spa, were all comfortable and lovely additions to a luxurious stay. Free bikes and scooters, a trampoline and the aforementioned pool mean we're definitely coming back with all the kids in tow!

What an outstanding motel and so central with great facilities and at the same time caring for the environment.Bikes are provided free to use and there is a great outdoor pool.One can steam food outside or barbecue or walk a very short distance down the street to food street.This motel is great for kids as you can park and then walk to many places.Wonderful staff who were so welcoming and friendly.

Stayed here for one night with two grandchildren. The facilities are great. Slightly dated room but very clean and had everything we needed. Loved the strong shower. The kids loved the pool. The mineral pools are nice too. Easy walk to restaurants. The hosts were lovely and friendly. Happy to recommend cafes for breakfast. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends.
