Lovely motel in a great location. Ester & Tom are very friendly & helpful hosts who were a pleasure to deal with.

Large room with accessible bathroom. Most comfortable KS bed with a 2seater lounge & 2 lounge chairs. Table & chairs in kitchette area.

Extra pillows (always a blessing instead of having to ask) & 2 lovely looking dressing gowns.

Large flat screen TV & free WiFi which we really appreciated.

Everything was spotless & well maintained. Loved to have known what the beautiful room fragrance was but forgot to ask.

Thought we may have had some road noise but very little if any once doors & windows were closed.

Functional small kitchen with spotless crockery & glasses & thank you for the lovely shortbread biscuits another nice touch that is missing from a lot of accommodation today

Location location location. Right opposite a big shopping centre with many restaurants in the main street all within a very easy short walk. The Irish pub over the road meals were very good

We stayed in 5 towns of different types of accommodation over the Easter break & this had to be one of the better ones.

Would highly recommend

We stayed here for a night last month, great value for money I think. Loved the room with spa bath, bed was extremely comfortable - only thing is when the jets in spa were turned on it sprayed out black dirt so couldn't really use it but one of those things and would most certainly stay there again!!

Thank you for your review, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry to hear you had trouble with the spa. We are very focused on cleanliness, especially in this area. After each stay the housekeeping staff, refill the spa baths and flush them with a cleaning agent. We will look into why this was not done in this case.

Excellent accommodation in the inner city. Very spacious and clean rooms which are very well equipped. The rooms are spotlessly clean and Esther and Tom are the perfect hosts. So helpful and obliging. Couldn't ask for anything more. Will definitely be back. !!

Large rooms,absolutely spotless and tidy.Well equipped.Extremely friendly and helpful hosts-Tom and Ester.Very close to town and a countdown supermarket.In room free Wifi was a bonus.Excellent Sky TV coverage on decent LCD TV.Shortbread was a nice touch.Comfortable beds.Our 1 bedroom unit had a spa bath and good shower.I thought the extraction fan in the bathroom was a bit noisy but it did the job.We didn't think there was much street noise- a little speedway noise on Saturday night but not really any problem,and finished early.Would not hesitate to book in again if we were around here.Highly recommended.Thanks Tom and Ester.

This motel is clean and tidy, shower had ok water pressure but not the greatest. Ice trays available at office and in rooms freezer. My unit was over the back so no street noise and good black out curtains, reception people seemed friendly enough

Large rooms, great service, spotlessly clean and tidy. Well done to Ester and Tom on a job well done. We booked a ground level unit as we had plenty of luggage, and there was room to store this, and be able to spread out!!! WOW. Has been several years since I had last stayed at the Cornwall Motor Lodge, but I'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a spa bath, very good. Don't be worried about the intersection and traffic...

As a rep, I have been staying at Cornwall Motor lodge for one if not two nights every month for the past year and have found the level of service second to none.
Tom and Ester, are FANTASTIC hosts.
I just love the location( 2 mins walk into the centre of town)
Rooms are ALWAYS spotless.
If you are looking for spacious, exceptionally clean motel with excellent host, look no further. I would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Must stay motel
