My husband and I stayed here for one night after droppping our daughter off at the youth camp next door.
Both of us were very cynical about what we would find given that the website and photos showed a pretty basic property (and neither of us were there for the famous local fishing) but can honestly say t hat we were pleasantly surprised on arrival.
We were checked in quickly and even for a one night booking on a Friday night we were given one of the prime cabins with a kitchenette. The cabin contained two comfortable double beds, and had a well equipped bathroom with plenty of towels for the two of us (a party of four might not be so happy!), and very usefully - the wash basin and mirror were separate from the bathroom so both of us could use the facilities at the same time..
The kitchenette was well equipped with pots and pans, and we had tea/ coffee making facilities and had we wanted to cook our own breakfast, that would not have been a problem! Our only complaint is that the on site store didn't open until 10 am when we wanted to be on our way!
However - with two cafes close by, we let them do the hard work and would recommend the Cypress tree for breakfast!
Its not the Ritz, its a basic but comfortable motel and campground,with very helpful owners, and from a quick scoot around the other local accommodations it is the best in the area! We would recommend it - and I am happily making a return visit there next month.
