We'd a spacious room but it was a little dark. We had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The lady on reception was very helpful also! There was noise from the room upstairs though via light floorboards but it wasn't disruptive.

This room was quite large with a separate bedroom. There was a full kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a large TV in the sitting room and another in the bedroom. You are within walking distance of downtown and many restaurants.

Stayed for a couple of nights at this motel and we were pleased with our choice. Our room was huge. Two floors with a bedroom downstairs and a double bed upstairs. Good cooking facilities and central location. Maybe 15-20 minutes walk to the town centre. Supermarket and shopping centre 10 minutes away. Bottle shop next door (almost) Very friendly and...

I don’t want to be too harsh but we simply wanted peace and quiet – we got that here 10 years ago. These days, generally speaking, it seems that’s an ambitious goal. In fairness, my initial one night stay in Unit 9, whilst on tour with clients, was perfectly fine. No issue. I should have asked for this unit again...

Stayed at the Ashford Motor Lodge for 3 days as a family of four. Arriving prior to check-in time, an early check-in was no problem and happily accommodated without question. The ground floor room was large with a separate bedroom from the lounge and dining. Two televisions were a bonus. We made use of the outdoor bbq area as well...

We were a party of nine (extended family) and moved here after a bad experience at a nearby motel. Our unit was modern, clean and well equipped. The amenities were good including an outdoor pool, although we were to busy to use it. The motel is close to a supermarket, mall, restaurants and a bottle store. It was a pleasant...

I can't write how amazing this stay was. Firstly we arrived with an extra person and not only did they change our room to accommodate (we were just gonna buy an air bed) but they gave us an amazing rate. The rooms are modern and spacious and the staff as BLOODY BRILLIANT. We swam in the pool which was clean...

The room I stayed in was a superior studio which was very nice with plenty of room and very little street noise. It is very close to the centre of the city an to bus stops which is good for those who wish to explore.
