3 adults (one couple and one single). We stayed at this motel for 2 nights on 27th and 28th February 2012. We had unit 5 which is a one double bedroom unit with a double bed settee in the lounge area. The overall impression when you walk in is of cleanliness. The kitchen has a ceramic hob, fridge, microwave, and lots of kitchen bits and pieces. Also lots of packs of coffee, tea etc. There were 2 tea towels, and more bath, hand and face towels than we would have needed. Free wifi, and sky tv were very appreciated by our son!
The following morning after our arrival, we were given more towels and packs of tea, coffee and biscuits. the only criticism is the outside table which really could be sended down and repainted, but the outdoor chairs were comfortable. The hostess was very gracious. I also appreciated the book swapping library in reception. On the down side the pool area is looking a little tired. We would go back.
