One grumpy old man ruined our whole stay sadly. My kids were in the pool playing and splashing and jumping in and getting out as kids do. He appeared from the reception area and his tone of voice and demeanour was a disgrace. His message, please don’t jump, was fine and fair

Hi, thank you for your review. we are sorry your children were scared. We would like to point out that as far as we are concerned it was you who was responsible as you were at the pool with your children, and it was you who Tim's request to follow pool rules was addressed. The signage around the pool is clearly displayed and though Children do not always read or obey the rules we expect their parents to be able to. The rules are made to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the pool for everyone. If any of our guests were to come to harm through either not being able to read or disregarding the sign, we would feel negligent in not having drawn the rules to their attention. regards Jan and Tim Hodgson

Here are the pros for Cheviot Park Motor Lodge: 1. Solar panels - my husband and I are environmentalists, so this was our initial draw to the hotel. 2. Friendly owners. We have seen many couples who own hotels where one or the other was friendly, but the owners here were both

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at this 4 star Motor Lodge, owned and run by Jan and Tim who were both very friendly and helpful. Our studio unit No. 5 had been refurbished, was spotlessly clean, comfortable bed with high quality linen, towels and comfortably furnished.

The room was spacious and comfortable. Check-in was smooth and friendly. Parking was opposite our door. Closing the windows on the side of the room nearest the main road effectively reduced the traffic noise. What we needed for self-catering was all present and correct.

Lower than the standard I would normally book for business travel, but my usual venue was booked. Tried this place and found a very friendly hostess. Actually stayed twice, approx a fortnight apart. Handy location, and surprisingly quiet given its location and age. It was OK

"A room away from the main road ideal"
"Good overall"
"Rooms 1, 2, 3 and 4 (studio) face the office and are slightly quieter as are 10,11,12 (family). My fave is Unit 1."
"Ask for a room away from the road end of the motel."
"If road noise bothers you ask for a room at the rear."
