Reviewed 10 July 2014

Stayed whilst on a trip to visit son. Over all it wasn't too bad, slightly misleading regarding the size of the room on the photograph. Couldn't sleep well, it was so hot and uncomfortable. Beds were most peculiar in the twin room we stayed in. Sat on one and it started to glide away from what we found out was not a headboard. Caused a few laughs having the earth move but husband stuck his shoes over castors to stop problem. Shouldn't have to do that! Basin in shower room smart but not practicable as the minute you turned on tap, it shot out soaking area around.

The welcome pack is very minimilistic, it does not state exactly what travellers are entitled to if paying in advance for breakfast as would be found in Premier or Holiday Inn. There is only a notice on the wall leading in to reception and even the staff didn't explain. We ordered a standard bacon and egg and french toast and got a bill for the toast as an extra which left us feeling embarressed. A more detailed pack would eliminate this problem.

Although we wouldn't use this motel again, we couldn't fault the staff in any way. Just needs a few adjustments over all.

We stopped here in early July for one night.

The check-in process was quick & easy & the receptionist very friendly & helpful.

The room was clean however, it was very dated & the shower head at a very low level and I'm only 5ft 8!

I think this motel could do with a bit of a facelift to bring the rooms into the 21st century.

Stayed: July 2014

We needed a hotel for one night and Damon's was perfect for this.
Great price, nice rooms - very clean.
The onsite restaurant is excellent, we dined there that evening and also had the breakfast included, you have to try the breakfast potatoes - delish!
All is all a pleasant stay :)

Stayed here over the Air Show weekend and what a lovely hotel. The rooms are exceptionally spacious and very clean. I had room 206 and it was very bright and cheeful. Had breakfast each morning in the restaurant and the food was very good and piping hot. The hotel offers 20% discount off the food bill so that was an added bonus. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. If only every hotel had a receptionist like Coral, the world would be a better place. She is an asset to the hotel and i hope they realise it.

The room was lovely, very spacious and light and a huge and very comfy bed.
Only downside was the sink was in the room not in the en-suite but not a huge issue.
I wish I could have taken the bed home!
We went in a group and I think we got the best room of us all but I think the others were still ok.
