We stayed here in July to meet some friends and have a night out in Haxey.
I was a bit worried by the term "Motel". I have stayed in some before and they have been low budget flea pits.
These, however, are on a different plane. Out the back of the pub there stretches around 17 terraced rooms. They are new builds and some work is still ongoing. The rooms are very large with en-suites and even a fridge. There is ample car parking outside your door. The decor is simple but effective. Flat screen freeview tv's, two single beds, an ample wardrobe, and dressing table and chair complete the furnishings. It is flat pack pine but looks great at the moment..
There is a hairdressers operating from one of the rooms.
The pub was fine and all the staff were pleasant and helpful.
A nice English breakfast topped it of for us, and for £60 it represents good value.
This place would be ideal for wedding guests, reunions, staff Xmas parties, etc.
I have no hesitation in recommending this as a short term stopover.
