4/10 Fair

Worst lack of service ever- find somewhere else
This motel has to have one if not the worst customer service of the ooo's of motels I stay as a commercial traveller on a regular basis. The manager rang prior to our arrivial saying had hundred's of calls seeking accommodation (his word's) confirmwed we still wanted it and a ETA. We arrived to find the office had CLOSED on the door and to ring a number. We rang twice and each time the call diverted then dropped out. I notice another group standing close by. I asked if they were trying to check in. One man replied no I'm the manager go into the office the door is unlocked. I did so only to be greeted by the lady behind the counter with "We dont answer the phone,I'm over it" She checked me in failing to tell any information such as the free breakfast. The room was ok but as other people came they were not given a room as it was full? Next morning very early I counted 8 rooms that had not been used. The sign at the entrance still said Vacancies when we arrived? The breakfast was the highlight of the stop. Well presented and very extensive ie Cereals by 15, Toast or bread x 4, juices, tea, coffee etc and in a nice dining room but unless you read the directory in the room you were not told. Clean pool area. Parking at the door

Clean, quiet, warm and spacious rooms. Easy access. Neat kitchenette with microwave. Bowls and cutlery provided - no plates. No electric blankets though heating good. Draught stoppers on doors would help with the icy winds!

We love the smiling welcome and the breakfast each time we come. This year however we discovered a problem with ants in the unit and keeping the can of surface spray right next to the glasses and mugs isn't healthy. First issue we have had in all the years we have been coming!

8/10 Very good

We've stayed at this property a few times over the years. There has definitely been money invested to make the facilities meet current expectations. The service was efficient, our room was spacious and clean though had limited windows. Included continental breakfast provides good overall value for money.
